Hess was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Being a member of the Orioles kept Hess seemingly in contention for a rotation spot despite his 7.09 ERA in 80 innings last season, but he now won't be breaking camp with the team. He hasn't shown that he deserves anything other than a low-leverage relief role thus far in his career.
Hess will be called up by the Orioles on Tuesday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Hess has been poor in 75 innings at the big-league level this season, posting a 7.44 ERA. He started in 14 of his 20 appearances, but there doesn't seem to be a starting spot available at this time.
Hess was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.
Hess served up a solo home run during his inning of work Wednesday and will make his way back to Norfolk. The 26-year-old has a 7.44 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 65:28 K:BB over 75 innings and has given up a whopping 28 homers this season.
Hess gave up two runs on two hits in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 9-4 loss to the Yankees.
Hess was summoned from Triple-A Norfolk to make a spot start July 29 in San Diego and didn't make a case for sticking in the rotation after surrendering five runs on six hits -- including four home runs -- in 4.2 innings to take the loss. His issues with the long ball continued in his second appearance out of the bullpen since that spot start, as both of the hits he allowed left the yard. It wouldn't be hyperbolic to call Hess the worst pitcher in all of fantasy baseball, as his 7.42 ERA and 7.43 FIP rank last among all hurlers who have covered 70-plus innings this season.
Hess (1-10) took the loss against the Padres on Monday, giving up five earned runs on six hits over 4.2 innings, striking out seven and walking none as the Orioles fell 8-1.
Hess was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to make this start, and it didn't go better than his previous time at the big-league level this season, as he was blasted by the Padres and sent to his 10th loss of the season in 11 decisions. Overall, he has a bloated 7.31 ERA, a 1.57 WHIP and a 62:28 K:BB through 72.2 innings.
Hess was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and will start Monday night's game in San Diego, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Hess has made 13 starts and three relief appearances for the Orioles this season, stumbling to an awful 7.15 ERA. His 17.6 percent strikeout rate, 9.0 percent walk rate and 32.1 percent groundball rate are each worse than average, significantly so in the case of his strikeouts and groundballs. Considering Hess threw 86 pitches in a start for Norfolk on Thursday and will be joining the Orioles only three days' rest, he'll likely face an unspecified restriction with his workload.
Hess was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk following Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.
Hess joined the Orioles as the 26th man for the twin bill and makes his way back to Norfolk after allowing three runs over two innings during the nightcap. The 26-year-old has a 7.15 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 55:28 K:BB over 68 major-league innings this season.

Hess was recalled by the Orioles on Saturday.
Hess has a 7.36 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 66 innings with the big-league club. He pitched primarily as a starter for the Orioles prior to being sent down to Triple-A Norfolk, though he last appeared as a reliever. With Andrew Cashner and Gabriel Ynoa slated to start the team's two contests prior to the All-Star break, Hess figures to work out of the bullpen for the remainder of the series against Toronto.
Hess allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over one inning Sunday in a loss to the Red Sox. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game.
Hess was moved to the bullpen Saturday after being handed his ninth loss of the season in his last start against the Blue Jays, and following that ugly relief appearance, the Orioles have elected to send him down. He sits with a 7.20 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 53 strikeouts across 65 innings this season in the big leagues.

Hess (1-9) allowed four earned runs on five hits and four walks over four innings while striking out three to take the loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Hess held the Blue Jays scoreless through four innings, but he ultimately was unable to secure an out in the fifth frame. He began the inning by allowing four consecutive batters to reach base, though two of the three hits were infield singles. After being pulled, Miguel Castro allowed all three of the inherited runners to score, making Hess' line for the night look much worse. Hess now has a 7.20 ERA and 1.55 WHIP across 65 innings for the season. He'll draw his next start Monday at Oakland.
Hess (1-8) allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and one walk across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rangers. He struck out two.
Hess needed just 90 pitches to make it through six innings despite the fact that he allowed a steady stream of baserunners. He induced eight ground balls to help mitigate the damage, but he was touched up for a pair of runs in the second and another pair in the fifth, including one that came on an error. This was just Hess' second quality start of the season, and while it was a respectable performance, he's far from a bankable fantasy option in his next start at home against the Blue Jays.
Hess will start Thursday against the Rangers, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Andrew Cashner had his scheduled start pushed back to Saturday due to leg soreness, resulting in Hess getting the ball one day earlier than he was originally scheduled to. The right-hander last started Saturday, so he'll be on his regular amount of rest Thursday. In 12 appearances this season (11 starts), Hess owns a 7.36 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 48:22 K:BB in 55 innings.
Hess allowed seven runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks across four innings while taking a loss against the Rangers on Saturday.
The loss dropped Hess to 1-7 this season, and each of his last seven decisions have been defeats. His one win came when he threw 6.1 scoreless frames in his first outing of the year on April 1. Since then, Hess has allowed at least four earned runs in seven of 10 appearances. In addition to the poor record, he owns a 7.36 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 55 innings this year. Hess will pitch again in Houston on Friday.
Hess gave up five runs (four earned) on nine hits and one walk while striking out six through 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.
After walking 3.6 BB/9 coming into this game, it was nice to see a 6:1 K:BB. The right-hander generated 12 swinging strikes on his fastball and slider, but he just allowed too many baserunners to be effective. He has a 1-6 record with a 6.71 ERA through 10 starts this season. Hess will make his next start Saturday against the Giants.
Hess (1-6) took the loss against the Yankees on Tuesday by allowing nine runs on eight hits across five innings. He struck out five and walked four.
Hess unfortunately faced the Yankees for the fourth time this season and once again struggled with the long ball as he served up three home runs. He's allowed 10 homers to the Yankees this season and has allowed 17 overall. The 25-year-old has a 6.75 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 38:18 K:BB over 45.1 innings this season, but according to Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun, he's expected to remain in the starting rotation for now. Hess lines up for another rough matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday.
Hess allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits with six strikeouts and one walk across six innings to take a loss against the Yankees in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday.
The long ball was a problem again versus the Yankees, as Hess served up four in the first part of the twin bill. He's yielded 14 homers in his last seven starts, and that's mostly why he's 1-5 with a 5.58 ERA. Hess has a 1.29 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 40.1 innings this year. He is set to pitch next at the Indians on Sunday.
