Renato Nunez: Cut loose by Baltimore

The Orioles released Nunez on Monday after he cleared waivers.Since Nunez was arbitration-eligible for the first time in his career and would have been due a hefty salary increase, the Orioles opted to cut ties with the 26-year-old and reserve his 40-man roster spot for another player. After slugging 43 home runs across the past two seasons, Nunez could find a home elsewhere as a bench bat or designated-hitter option.

Orioles' Renato Nunez: Cast off 40-man

Nunez was designated for assignment Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.While Nunez offers fantasy value when he is playing everyday, the rebuilding Orioles would prefer to use his 40-man roster spot to protect prospects from the Rule 5 draft. Nunez is a first baseman/designated hitter, so his real-life value is minimal. He was worth 0.9 fWAR in 203 games over the past two seasons.
