Carroll (back) will resume throwing Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Carroll has been out since the start of the season with lower-back soreness. He could eventually push for a role in the big-league bullpen, but his 9.00 ERA in 17 innings at the highest level last season doesn't give him a very good case for a major-league spot.
Carroll was sent to minor-league camp Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Carroll compiled a solid 2.57 ERA and 9:1 K:BB through seven appearances (7.0 innings) this spring, but it wasn't enough to earn him a spot on Baltimore's Opening Day roster. The right-hander will provide bullpen depth for the Orioles throughout the season.
Carroll, Josh Rogers and Dillon Tate were traded from the Yankees to the Orioles in exchange for Zach Britton on Tuesday. Carroll had a quality 2.38 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across 41.2 innings out of Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's bullpen this season, registering a 55:18 K:BB and .184 opponent batting average. The hard-throwing right-hander will start out with Triple-A Norfolk in his new organization, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him called up to the Orioles if he can illustrate better control of his secondary pitches.
