Looked up his analytics and I'm honestly surprised he's a guy the Orioles didn't take a shot on. Seemed like a missed opportunity, especially when they still had Mike Wright on the roster. Seems like they choose Wright over him.

It appears his slider was his best pitch and he's jumped from throwing 32% to 52.5% this season with the Mariners. The increase usage has helped his fastball play up.  He's only been barreled once in 284 major league pitches. Still a small sample size but he's the exact kind of guy I would have taken a flier on.

Considering the guys we have taken off waivers, I'm surprised he wasn't.
