Former Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz has been designated for assignment after Sunday's lackluster start with the Chicago Cubs, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Matusz, 29, allowed six runs, six hits and two walks in three innings in his first start with the Cubs on Sunday night. Chicago rallied to defeat the Seattle Mariners, 7-6.
Matusz is 27-41 with a 4.92 ERA in 280 major league appearances since making his debut with the Orioles in 2009. The former No. 4 overall draft pick was traded from Baltimore to the Atlanta Braves for two minor league pitchers in May, designated for assignment the next day and released a week later.
