Eshelman was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
This move comes after Eshelman was designated for assignment earlier in the week. The 25-year-old right-hander compiled a 6.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 10 appearances (four starts) with the big club this season.
The Orioles designated Eshelman for assignment Monday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Eshelman will surrender his 40-man roster spot to designated hitter/outfielder Mark Trumbo (knee), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old right-hander had been pitching at Triple-A Norfolk since mid-August after submitting a 6.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 10 outings (four starts) with the big club.
Eshelman surrendered three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one over two innings Friday night against Boston. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Eshelman has had a rough go of it in the majors this season, as he sits with a 6.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with a 22:11 K:BB over 36 innings following Friday's outing. The Orioles figure to recall a pitcher in a corresponding move Saturday.
Eshelman was deployed in relief in the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Yankees, giving up a run on three hits and a walk over three innings in the Orioles' 11-8 loss.
The Orioles have used Eshelman as both a traditional starter and as a primary pitcher behind an opener this season, but manager Brandon Hyde now seems to view the right-hander as more of a mop-up man in long relief. Each of Eshelman's last three appearances have come out of the bullpen.
Eshelman worked 2.2 innings out of the bullpen in Wednesday's 14-2 loss to the Yankees, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk.
Eshelman had just tossed five innings in his appearance as a primary pitcher Aug. 4 versus Toronto, so it was somewhat surprising to see manager Brandon Hyde call on the right-hander to toss 49 pitches in relief three days later in a blowout. In any event, Hyde hasn't indicated that Eshelman has been removed from Baltimore's rotation, so it's expected the rookie will start or work as a primary pitcher Monday for one of the Orioles' doubleheader games with the Yankees in New York.
Eshelman (1-2) earned the win after allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Eshelman worked as the primary pitcher for Sunday's series finale, and he surrendered one run in the second, followed by another in the fifth and two more in the seventh on a pair of solo homers. The 25-year-old right-hander has struggled through six appearances this season, accruing a 6.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with 19 strikeouts over 27.2 innings.
Eshelman will work behind an opener Sunday versus the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Eshelman was expected to be used as a traditional starter Sunday, but he'll instead follow Jimmy Yacabonis. The 25-year-old last worked as a primary pitcher July 25 and allowed one runs across 4.1 innings.
Eshelman allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five across four innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Padres.
Eshelman yielded three runs in the first, as both Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado hit solo homers and Wil Myers connected for an RBI double. The right-hander steadied after that, but was nicked for one more run on a Francisco Mejia fielder's choice in the third before being removed after 63 pitches. Eshelman now has a 6.35 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 22.2 innings this season. He'll look to bounce back in his next start Sunday at home against the Blue Jays.
Eshelman will start Tuesday's game against the Padres, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The Orioles initially listed Eshelman as the bulk reliever for the series finale, but they've since named him the starting pitcher. He surrendered one run on four hits and a walk while fanning two over 4.1 innings in his last appearance Thursday against the Angels.
Eshelman will follow an opener Tuesday against the Padres, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The opener has not yet been specified. Eshelman served as the primary pitcher in his previous outing Thursday against the Angels and had his best game of the season, allowing just one run in 4.1 innings of work.
Eshelman served as the primary pitcher and did not factor into the decision Thursday against the Angels, completing 4.1 innings and allowing one run on four hits and a walk while striking out two.
After compiling a 6.91 ERA working as a traditional starter in the first three games of his career, Eshelman was brought in behind opener Jimmy Yacabonis against the Angels and fared well, retiring eight of the final nine batters he faced. He departed after 64 pitches following a one-out single off the bat of David Fletcher, who later came around to score the only run charged to Eshelman in the game. It remains to be seen whether the rookie will again follow an opener or return to a traditional starting role in his next appearance, which is scheduled to come in San Diego on Tuesday.
Eshelman is set to work as a bulk reliever behind opener Jimmy Yacabonis in Thursday's game against the Angels.
Eshelman was roughed up over his first three big-league starts, giving up 15 runs (11 earned) on 17 hits -- including five home runs -- and five walks across 14.1 innings. The Orioles will experiment with Eshelman as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen with the hope that the arrangement yields more favorable results. Since Yacabonis has prior starting experience and tossed 61 pitches in an appearance just under two weeks ago, he may have a longer leash than most openers. That might make it difficult for Eshelman to even reach four or five innings out of the bullpen.
Eshelman won't start Thursday's game against the Angels as previously scheduled, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Eshelman was announced as the starter for the series opener earlier in the week, but Jimmy Yacabonis will instead receive the starting nod. Eshelman could still work as the primary pitcher since Yacabonis has worked as an opener this season, but so far the Orioles have only announced that the latter is starting.
Eshelman (0-2) allowed nine runs (five earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out three across 3.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Red Sox.
Eshelman was taken yard three times, accounting for six of his nine runs for the contest. This was his shortest start of the season with the big-league club, and he had actually performed respectably in his first two outings by working at least five innings in both. However, he now has a 6.91 ERA and 1.53 WHIP across 14.1 innings for the campaign. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently scheduled for Thursday in Anaheim.
Eshelman is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Red Sox.
Eshelman entered the rotation last weekend against the Rays and acquitted himself reasonably well, giving up four runs in 5.2 innings while striking out seven. The performance will be enough to earn him a second turn through the rotation, but a poor outing could put Eshelman's starting role in jeopardy, especially with Dylan Bundy (knee) on track to return from the 10-day injured list during the upcoming week.
Eshelman (0-1) took the loss after giving up four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings Sunday against the Rays.
Eshelman joined the starting rotation immediately after being promoted from Triple-A Norfolk, though he didn't pitch well enough in this one to come away with a victory. He surrendered one run in the second inning, another in the third and two more in the sixth on a two-run home run before being removed with two outs in the sixth inning. It's unclear at this point whether he'll remain in the rotation moving forward.
Eshelman will receive the start in Sunday's series finale with the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Fresh up from Triple-A Norfolk, Eshelman will immediately slot into the Baltimore rotation as a replacement for Andrew Cashner, who was shipped to Boston on Saturday. Eshelman had a promising MLB debut against this same Rays squad in Tampa Bay on July 1, limiting the opposition to two runs on six hits and a walk over five frames, though he failed to strike out a batter. The soft-tossing righty doesn't make for a comfortable streaming option in his return to the big leagues and could be in danger of a demotion to Triple-A if he turns in a poor outing.
The Orioles recalled Eshelman from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Eshelman will fill the 25-man roster spot that opened up when Andrew Cashner was dealt to the Red Sox on Saturday. Cashner's departure will create an opening in the rotation for Sunday's series finale with the Rays, so Eshelman could be called upon to make second start of the season with Baltimore or at least cover multiple innings in relief. Since the Orioles won't require a fifth starter again until June 23 -- when Dylan Bundy (knee) is expected to be ready to return from the 10-day injured list -- Eshelman could be sent back to the minors following Sunday's contest.
Eshelman was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.
Eshelman didn't strike out a batter in his big-league debut Monday against the Rays but escaped with just two runs allowed in five innings of work. He'll head back to the minors with no more starting opportunities available prior to the All-Star break but could get more chances to start down the stretch. Josh Lucas (shoulder) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Eshelman gave up two runs on six hits and one walk without any strikeouts through five innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Monday.
Eshelman gave up two runs in the first inning and only allowed two hits through the next four innings in his MLB debut. The right-hander has an interesting pitch arsenal, with a fastball that reaches 87 MPH, but possesses excellent command. Despite a 4.46 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in the minors this season, this performance may be enough to get him another start in the majors.
