Ogando opted out of his minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being DFA'd by the Braves at the end of June, Ogando signed on with the Diamondbacks but failed to make much of an impact at the Triple-A level, struggling to a 13.50 ERA across six relief appearances. He'll now opt for free agency in hopes of landing in a more opportunistic situation.

Ogando signed a minor league deal with Arizona on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SBNation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ogando was designated for assignment by the Braves on June 27 and was scooped up by the Diamondbacks during his waiver period. The 32-year-old has had command issues this season, walking 23 batters in 32 innings resulting in a 1.72 WHIP. He'll likely head to Triple-A Reno now and figures to be a call up candidate should Arizona require bullpen depth down the road.

Ogando was designated for assignment Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Ogando was having a decent season, going 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 32 innings pitched. However, since the beginning of June the 32-year-old has struggled to get batters out, posting a 6.52 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 12 appearances. It appears the Braves have had enough and will replace Ogando with 22-year-old Mauricio Cabrera in the bullpen.

Ogando allowed three hits, including a two-run homer in one inning against the Pirates on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first home run he's yielded this season, but in his last four outings, Ogando has allowed four runs on nine hits over 3.2 innings. His ERA is still a decent 3.63, but his WHIP has ballooned to 1.90. He also has 16 strikeouts and 12 walks in 17.1 innings.

Ogando (1-0) surrendered a hit and a walk over two innings in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Marlins. He also struck out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old continued his effective work out of the Braves bullpen, with Friday's outing serving as the third of his four appearances where he's pitched scoreless ball. The veteran right-hander has posted a sterling 1.42 ERA over 6.1 innings of work so far in 2016.

Ogando was added to the Braves' roster Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

In camp as an NRI, Ogando enjoyed a strong spring and will likely work in middle relief out of the Atlanta bullpen. Last season, as a member of the Red Sox, Ogando posted a 3.99 ERA, nearly halving his ERA (6.84) from 2014.

Ogando signed a minor league contract with the Braves on Wednesday that includes an invite to the team's spring training, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ogando enjoyed a bit of a bounce back with the Red Sox in 2015, cutting his ERA from 2014 (6.84) down to a respectable 3.99 mark. That said, his FIP was alarmingly high at 5.32, which indicates that he could be due for a regression to the mean in 2016. However, he'll have a chance to make the Braves' Opening Day roster if he can put together a solid spring training.

Ogando elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ogando had a mostly successful season in Boston, working to a 3.99 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 65.1 innings, but it apparently wasn't enough to convince the Red Sox to keep him on the roster. He should be able to find a role in the middle of a bullpen wherever he lands.

Ogando allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out three in 2.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Ogando pitched parts of three innings, getting his pitch count up beyond where it typically is. Manager John Farrell did not have Junichi Tazawa available after he threw 31 pitches Saturday, and he doesn't have confidence in other members of the bullpen, so he extended Ogando. When Farrell has kept Ogando in the three to four outs range, the reliever has been pretty effective.

Ogando got four outs, striking out one, in Tuesday night's win over the Blue Jays. He hasn't been touched for a run in 11 consecutive appearances, covering a span of 11.2 innings.

Ogando got the call in the high-leverage eighth inning, bridging to closer Koji Uehara, probably because Toronto has had success against usual setup man Junichi Tazawa. Ogando lowered his ERA to 2.88 with the outing, its lowest point since early April.
