Duensing (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing hasn't pitched since June 19 after he developed bone chips in his left elbow, requiring a DL stint. Shortly after landing on the DL, he underwent surgery on the elbow, which is expected to sideline him until late August. With Duensing not set to return anytime soon, the Orioles decided to move him to the 60-day DL to open up a 40-man roster spot for Ariel Miranda, who will give the team a long-relief option out of the bullpen.

Duensing was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with left elbow inflammation, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was sent in for tests on his pitching elbow Tuesday, and it appears his injury is severe enough to warrant a stint on the disabled list. There is no timetable for his return at this point, but given the nature of elbow injuries for pitchers, the Orioles are unlikely to rush him back into action. Baltimore recalled lefty reliever Ashur Tolliver in a corresponding move Wednesday.

Duensing is getting tests for an elbow injury Tuesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing apparently injured his elbow Monday and is requiring tests to diagnose the exact cause. Oliver Drake was called up to replace Paul Janish, who was outrighted, and provide bullpen depth while Duensing is undergoing evaluation. Depending on the results of the tests, Duensing could be headed for the DL in the coming days.

Duensing signed a minor league contract with Baltimore on Monday, Rich Dubroff of Comcast SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing found a new home rather quickly, after he opted out of his minor league contract with Kansas City last week. The veteran compiled a 3.10 ERA in 12 relief appearances this season with Triple-A Omaha, the Royals' affiliate. Duensing will likely serve as organizational depth for Baltimore, who traded reliever Brian Matusz to Atlanta on Monday.

Duensing resigned with the Royals on a minor league contract Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing struggled in his few appearances in Royals camp, but he'll sign back into the organization after he was released Monday. That being said, he'll likely spend 2016 with Triple-A Omaha acting as organizational depth.

The Royals released Duensing on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing missed a brief stretch this spring due to an ankle contusion, but in three appearances since his return, he struggled to the tune of three runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out zero in 3.1 innings. The left-handed reliever will likely garner some interest on the open market, though a minor league contract is likely the best-case scenario.

Duensing (ankle) threw two scoreless innings in Saturday's split squad win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Duensing was hit in the ankle by a comebacker Wednesday, but it doesn't look any concern. He's having a good spring (2 ER in seven innings with 10 strikeouts) and remains in the mix for one of the final bullpen spots.
