  • Red Sox's Andrew Politi: Returns to Red Sox

    Politi cleared waivers and was returned Tuesday to the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. After being selected by the Orioles in the Rule 5 Draft, Politi is back where it all started. The 26-year-old right-hander pitched to a sharp 2.34 ERA and 83:22 K:BB in 69.1 innings last season between Boston's Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. He mostly struggled in O's camp this spring.

  • Orioles' Andrew Politi: Coin flip to make team

    Politi has a 50-50 chance to break camp with the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Kubatko adds the Orioles have been intrigued by Politi's stuff, but he hasn't fared well in spring games with four earned runs allowed over 3.2 innings. He's posted a 7:1 K:BB and hasn't allowed a home run, so there's some reason to be optimistic. As a Rule 5 pick, Politi must be on the Orioles' major-league roster all season, or he would have to be offered back to the Red Sox. With a large number of relievers and some potential starters that won't fit in the rotation, the Orioles will likely make their decision on Politi near the end of camp.
