Orioles has released infielder Domingo Leyba, the team informed journalists (including Rich Dubroff of Baltimore Baseball). Leyba had been passed through dispensations earlier this month and was on direct duty to Triple-A Norfolk. He will now hit the open market in search of a new opportunity.
Leyba picked up 96 record appearances split between the Os and Diamondbacks this season. It was his second year logging some major league action when the switch-hitter broke into the majors with the D-Backs in 2019. Between the two clubs, Leyba has picked up 126 plate appearances and hit .158 / .238 / .223 with a home run .
It’s obviously not very impressive production, but Leyba has a far more accomplished .307 / .355 / .542 line over 609 trips to the record in his Triple-A career. He is also a skilled second base defender who has the ability to play a shortstop or a third base if needed. It would not be a surprise to see Leyba locks elsewhere via minor league deal in the coming days.
