Verrett signed a minor-league contract with Oakland on Monday, Athletics Farm reports.
Verrett played in South Korea during the 2018 campaign, but he'll return to the United States and has been assigned to Double-A Midland to begin spring training. He appeared in four games for the Orioles during the 2017 season, allowing five runs on 11 hits and three walks while fanning nine across 10.2 frames. Verrett figures to serve as organizational depth for the Athletics.
Verrett signed with the NC Dinos in South Korea, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.
He was removed from the Orioles' 40-man roster in September, and instead of going to Triple-A and trying to pitch his way back to the majors, he opted for a stable job overseas. The 27-year-old righty has a 4.62 ERA in 150 MLB innings.
Verrett cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Verrett will head back to Norfolk to serve as organizational pitching depth after passing through waivers untouched. The 27-year-old compiled a 4.22 ERA across 10.2 major-league innings this season, which is slightly better than his 4.62 ERA over 150 career big-league innings.
Verrett was designated for assignment on Friday.
The O's needed to clear a couple of 40-man roster spots, and Verrett was seen as an expendable piece. He could easily stay in the organization, however, as he boasts a 4.62 career ERA in 150 big-league innings.
Verrett was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.
The right-hander was called up Sunday to provide extra bullpen depth, but he'll head back to the minors after hurling 2.2 innings in relief immediately after being recalled. Miguel Castro will take his spot in Baltimore's bullpen, but Verrett could end up back in the majors once he's available to pitch again.
Verrett was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
It's the fourth call-up of the season for Verrett, who made one appearance apiece in each of his previous three stints with the Orioles this season. The 27-year-old, who had been carrying a 5.87 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 23 innings with Norfolk, will likely serve as a mop-up man out of the bullpen.
Verrett was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
After starter Chris Tillman lasted just 2.2 innings for the Orioles in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees, Verrett was called upon for long relief and didn't fare much better, surrendering three runs on five hits and a walk over three innings. The heavy workload likely would have kept Verrett unavailable for at least the next two games, so he was sent back to Norfolk in exchange for Mike Wright, who will offer the Orioles a fresher arm out of the bullpen.
The Orioles recalled Verrett from Triple-A Norfolk prior to Sunday's game against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Verrett will provide the Orioles with a fresh arm out of the bullpen after Tyler Wilson tossed an inning in Saturday's game and was subsequently optioned back to Norfolk. Verrett and Ubaldo Jimenez are candidates to piggyback Alec Asher, who replaces Jimenez in the rotation Sunday after having worked out of the bullpen in recent weeks.

Verrett appeared in just one game during his latest stint in the majors. He pitched three shutout innings and allowed just two hits. In a corresponding move, the Orioles recalled Vidal Nuno from Norfolk.
Verrett was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.
He will add some length to Baltimore's bullpen after Zach Britton (forearm) and Gabriel Ynoa (hamstring) were placed on the DL. Verrett had a 6.57 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 12.1 innings with Norfolk. Righty swing man Alec Asher was also recalled along with Verrett.
Verrett was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The Orioles wanted to add a fresh arm in the bullpen for their four-game series with the Red Sox that begins Monday, so Verrett -- who covered two innings Sunday against the Yankees -- was shipped out in favor of Mike Wright. Verrett will likely work in long relief for Norfolk, with whom he's compiled a 6.57 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 12.1 innings on the season.
Verrett was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Verrett will take over the spot on the 25-man roster vacated by Jayson Aquino, who was optioned to Norfolk a day earlier. It's expected that Verrett will work in long relief for the Orioles after turning in a 6.57 ERA over 12.1 innings with Norfolk.
Verrett allowed two hits and four walks while striking out four over two innings Thursday for Triple-A Norfolk.
Once considered an option to replace Chris Tillman (shoulder) in the big-league rotation, Verrett has fallen a long way from grace. A terrible spring ruined any chance of making the 25-man roster, and his minor-league Opening Day performance casts more doubt on his ability to contribute at the highest level. The right-hander can't afford early-season control problems in the minors if he hopes to have any chance of donning an Orioles uniform this season.
Verrett was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Verrett was briefly in consideration to fill one of the Orioles' rotation spots to begin the year, however his spring struggles landed him at Triple-A Norfolk instead. The 26-year-old worked to a 8.10 ERA and 2.18 WHIP through 13.1 innings this spring. If he pitches well in the minors, Verrett could see some opportunities with the Orioles at some point in 2017.
Verrett pitched two innings, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out one in Monday's exhibition against the Phillies.
Verrett replaced starter Kevin Gausman in the fifth inning and immediately gave up a home run to the first batter he faced. After allowing two more hits in the frame, Verrett escaped severe damage by inducing a double play. The right-hander got two quick outs in the sixth but walked a pair before finishing his day. Verrett is considered an option to replace Chris Tillman (shoulder) in the team's Opening Day rotation. However, he's struggling to keep up with his competition, as Verrett has allowed eight hits and three free passes over six Grapefruit League innings for an ugly 1.83 WHIP.
Verrett is among the candidates to replace Chris Tillman (shoulder) in the rotation to open 2017, Rich Dubroff of Pressbox reports.
Tillman isn't expected to miss much time, but it may Verrett's only window of opportunity for quite a while. He'll compete with a handful of others that includes Tyler Wilson, Mike Wright and Gabriel Ynoa for the rotation's temporary opening. Verrett had terrible numbers in 12 starts for the Mets last season. He went 1-6 with a 6.45 ERA and 1.62 WHIP while opponents tagged the right-hander for a .916 OPS in those outings. The 26-year-old has had success as a starter in the minors, putting together a .686 winning percentage and a 3.93 ERA over five seasons. A good showing this spring could earn Verrett a chance not only to open 2017 as part of the rotation, but may also put him on the radar for future starts if others (specifically Ubaldo Jimenez and Wade Miley) stumble early in the campaign.
Verrett was traded to the Orioles on Wednesday in exchange for cash, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.
Verrett was picked by the Orioles in the 2015 Rule 5 draft, so they have history with him. He managed a 2.84 ERA and 25 strikeouts in 31.2 innings as a reliever, but posted a 6.45 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 60 innings as a starter with the Mets last year. The Mets obviously were not going to be using him as a starter in 2017, but the Orioles could wind up trying him in that role at some point, considering some of the mediocre options they have used in recent seasons. That said, even if he were to find his way into the rotation, he would be unappealing in the majority of fantasy formats. If he ends up relieving, then he becomes even less interesting, as he would be used in middle relief.
Verrett was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of the Record reports.
Verrett has played very well during his last two starts with Las Vegas. Over 12 innings, he allowed just two runs and eight hits. However, control continued to be an issue as he walked eight batters in that time. During his 30 outings with the Mets this season, Verrett has posted a 10.6-percent walk rate.
Verrett's agents are attempting to get his option rescinded and instead have the Mets place him on the major league disabled list, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.
Verrett's agents are claiming his recent issues -- 0-3 with a 7.18 ERA in seven starts since Matt Harvey was injured -- are due to a neck injury. The Mets had team doctors perform an MRI and they found nothing significant, but they've sent the results off for a second opinion. We'll have to wait and see what happens in this case, but either way, it sounds like Verrett won't be pitching in the Mets' rotation anytime soon.
Verrett was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.
He lost his spot in the big league rotation after getting hammered for eight runs over 2.2 innings Friday. Jon Niese moves into the rotation and Gabriel Ynoa was recalled to provide bullpen depth as a corresponding move. Verrett could be an option to slot back into the rotation down the road if Niese struggles.
