Orioles | Mitch Atkins optioned to Triple-A

The Baltimore Orioles optioned SP Mitch Atkins to Triple-A Norfolk after the game Sunday, July 17. Atkins allowed three earned runs, six hits and two walks over just three innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Cleveland Indians. He needed 77 pitches, throwing just 43 for strikes. Manager Buck Showalter said his poor fastball command was the reason for the move.
