    The Orioles have acquired right-hander Jairo Asencio from the Brewers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations, according to Rich Dubroff of CSN Baltimore (on Twitter).

    Asencio, 28, split the 2012 season between the Indians and Cubs, pitching to a 4.91 ERA, 6.5 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 40 1/3 innings of relief work. He's been flat-out dominant at the Triple-A level, compiling a 2.52 ERA, 10.2 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 139 1/3 innings, though that's yet to transfer over to the big league level.

    Asencio has averaged 92.3 mph on his heater throughout his career and owns a 40.8 percent ground-ball rate. He pitched previously under a false name: Luis Valdez.

    Played under the name Luis Valdez. His identity was discovered in 2010. He used a fake name to sign a contract earlier than allowed by MLB.

    Was on a minor league deal with the Brewers.

    He may have one option remaining. He used an option year in 2009 and 2011, but was optioned in 2010 but subsequently placed on the restricted list. But he was DFA'ed twice last year making me think that he might be out of options.

    Barring any trade acquisitions between now and opening Thursday’s season opener, Braves sidearmer Cory Gearrin and left-hander Yohan Flande are left as the likely choices for the final t

    Asencio, 28, was out of minor-league options and would have had to clear waivers before he could be sent to the minor leagues if he wasn’t on the Braves’ opening day roster. Rather than keep him on the roster or lose him on a waiver claim and get nothing in return, the Braves traded the Dominican right-hander.

    “He’s always been a one-inning pitcher,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said, “and the [bullpen] role we envision needing to make a decision on is a multi-inning guy who can give you two or three innings at a time. That’s not something he’s ever done, so we were coming to the end with him being out of options and we looked to make a deal.”

    Asencio had a 3.27 ERA in 10 spring-training appearances, allowing 13 hits, four runs and three walks with 12 strikeouts.

    Since he is on a minor league deal, that will only become an issue if we want him in the magors, and then try to send back down.

    Surprising that DD is still stocking pitchers for Norfolk. He is definitely into depth.

    Yep. The fans and people who run the team at Norfolk should love Dan Duquette.

    According to Roch's tweets, DD was interested in him last year but didn't get him.

    He was 12 out of 12 save opportunities in the Dominican when the Orioles scouted him.
