Stewart was released by the Orioles on Tuesday. The 30-year-old right-hander signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles in early February. Stewart failed to impress management as a non-roster invitee the spring, and he was awful (7.41 ERA and 1.76 WHIP) in three starts for Norfolk. With some MLB service under his belt, Stewart should have a good chance at finding another minor-league deal with a new team.
Stewart received a non-roster invite to spring training, ESPN.com reports. Stewart inked a minor league contract with the Orioles in late-January and will get his first crack at the big leagues since 2012, when he appeared in 20 games for the Red Sox and White Sox. The 30-year-old right-hander's most recent experience came in in the Korean league, and although he's not expected to compete for a spot on the 25-man roster, Stewart's experience could earn him a mid-season call-up if he has a strong spring and good first half in the minors.
Stewart signed a minor league contract with the Orioles, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. The 30-year-old spent last season in Korea, posting a 4.66 ERA over 143.0 innings. He last pitched in the majors in 2012, but he struggled in his time there as he posted a 6.82 ERA across 103.0 innings. The righty should primarily provide organizational depth.
