Ogando signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Tuesday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports. Ogando is looking to return to the majors after spending the 2017 season in Korea, working as a starter and posting a 3.93 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 19 starts (110 innings) for the Hanwha Eagles. He last pitched in the majors with the Braves in 2016, though he struggled with control (23 walks in 32 innings) and wound up getting designated for assignment in the middle of the season. While Ogando hasn't started a game since 2013, when he posted a respectable 3.11 ERA with the Rangers, he's expected to stretch out as a starter during spring training.
Ogando has signed a contract for 2017 to play in South Korea with the Hanwha Eagles, the Yonhap News Agency reports. Ogando had a 3.94 ERA with the Braves last season, but wasn't able to stay in the majors all season as he had command issues, walking 23 batters in 32 innings resulting in a 1.72 WHIP.
Ogando opted out of his minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. After being DFA'd by the Braves at the end of June, Ogando signed on with the Diamondbacks but failed to make much of an impact at the Triple-A level, struggling to a 13.50 ERA across six relief appearances. He'll now opt for free agency in hopes of landing in a more opportunistic situation.
Ogando signed a minor league deal with Arizona on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SBNation reports. Ogando was designated for assignment by the Braves on June 27 and was scooped up by the Diamondbacks during his waiver period. The 32-year-old has had command issues this season, walking 23 batters in 32 innings resulting in a 1.72 WHIP. He'll likely head to Triple-A Reno now and figures to be a call up candidate should Arizona require bullpen depth down the road.
Ogando was designated for assignment Monday. Ogando was having a decent season, going 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 32 innings pitched. However, since the beginning of June the 32-year-old has struggled to get batters out, posting a 6.52 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 12 appearances. It appears the Braves have had enough and will replace Ogando with 22-year-old Mauricio Cabrera in the bullpen.
