The Orioles released LHP Ty Blach.
Blach underwent Tommy John surgery and will be out until late in the 2021 season.
Ty Blach received a second opinion on his elbow, and has decided to have Tommy John surgery, per manager Brandon Hyde.
Blach was probably going to be a long reliever, but it's unfortunate to see the former top prospect have this happen. Look for Blach to be back pitching sometime at the end of 2021.
Ty Blach is receiving a second opinion on his elbow, per manager Brandon Hyde. Blach had soreness in his elbow during a workout on Thursday, and his first exam was inconclusive.
Blach was on the outside looking in for a rotation spot, and this injury all but seals the deal. Blach has a career 4.99 ERA in 326 innings.
Ty Blach tossed 2 and 1/3 innings on Tuesday against the Nationals, giving up five runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out one in the loss.
While Blach's performance was certainly poor, giving up doubles to Trea Turner and Juan Soto happens to everyone. Blach is slated to shuttle between Triple A and the majors this year, so he won't be fantasy relevant.
Ty Blach allowed six earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three across 2 1/3 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Blach did not look good at all on Tuesday and is now 1-2 with a 10.95 ERA and 2.15 WHIP. The 28-year-old lefty will face the Tigers next and fantasy owners should be leaving Blach on the waiver wire.
