Ryan Lavarnway has been let go by four teams since late November

14 Comments

The Orioles made their deal with Delmon Young official, formally announcing their one-year, $2.25 million contract with their DH/OF. He can earn an additional $750,000 through incentives

To make room for Young on the roster, the O’s designated catcher Ryan Lavarnway for assignment. So far, this is Lavarnway’s offseason:

  • DFA’d by the Red Sox in late November;
  • Claimed by Dodgers in early December;
  • DFA’d by the Dodgers about a week later;
  • Claimed by the Cubs around December 19;
  • Waived by the Cubs around December 23;
  • Claimed by the Orioles as soon as the Cubs waived him;
  • DFA’d by the Orioles today.

I assume he’ll be on a team when spring training starts. But he is quickly running out of teams.
