Mariners' Austin Voth: Gets MLB deal from Seattle
Voth signed a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Mariners on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The 31-year-old's contract includes a potential additional year of team control in 2025. Voth collected a 5.19 ERA and 34:15 K:BB over 34.2 innings in 2023 with the Orioles. He was used exclusively in relief last season during his time in the majors but has plenty of past starting experience and could operate in a swingman or long-relief role in Seattle.... See More ...

Orioles' Austin Voth: Accepts outright assignment
Voth cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
Voth is no longer on the Orioles' 40-man roster but has accepted the outright assignment and will join Norfolk's roster as swingman depth. He holds a 5.19 ERA through 34.2 innings in the majors in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: DFA'd by O's
The Orioles designated Voth for assignment Sunday.
Voth will be pushed off the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Jorge Lopez, who was claimed off waivers from Miami on Saturday. The 31-year-old righty holds a 5.19 ERA and 1.56 WHIP through 34.2 innings, and he will likely remain in the minors for the rest of the year if he goes unclaimed on the waiver wire.... See More ...

Orioles' Austin Voth: Returns from injured list
Voth (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Voth has been on the shelf for more than two months with a sore right elbow, but he's ready to go now after making eight rehab appearances. The righty will give Orioles manager Brandon Hyde a reliever capable of throwing multiple innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Orioles transferred Voth (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Monday.
Voth had been on the 15-day IL since June 14, so his move to the 60-day IL ensures he won't be activated until mid-August. The 31-year-old right-hander started up a minor-league rehab assignment July 20, so he'll likely take close to the entire 30-day window to get stretched back out before making his return to the Baltimore bullpen. Voth's move to the 60-day IL clears a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Jacob Webb, whom the Orioles claimed off waivers from the Angels on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Moving rehab to Triple-A
Voth (elbow) will move up to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday as he continues his rehab assignment, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.
Voth has been out since mid-June with right elbow discomfort but seems to be nearing a return. The 31-year-old has collected a 4.94 ERA over 23 relief appearances with the Orioles this season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Starts rehab assignment
Voth (elbow) began a rehab assignment with the Orioles' Florida Coast League affiliate Thursday.
Voth tossed a perfect inning in his first appearance with the FCL Orioles. It's not clear how many more rehab games he might require before rejoining the O's bullpen. Voth has been out since mid-June with right elbow discomfort.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Throwing side sessions
Voth (elbow) has been throwing side sessions at the Orioles' complex in Florida, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
If all goes according to plan, Voth will begin working in game situations sometime next week. There's still no telling how long it will be before Voth returns to Baltimore's bullpen, but he seems to be at least a few weeks out. The 31-year-old righty has been on the injured list since June 14 with right elbow discomfort.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Plays catch Monday
Voth (elbow) resumed throwing Monday on flat ground, Danielle Allentuck of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.
Voth entered into a rest and treatment period when he hit the 15-day injured list in mid-June due to elbow discomfort, but he's on the right track again and could perhaps return to the Orioles' bullpen before the All-Star break. He had registered a 4.94 ERA and 31:14 K:BB across 31 innings of relief prior to the IL stint.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Shut down for one week
Voth (elbow) was given anti-inflammatories Thursday and will be shut down for one week, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Voth landed on the injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation, an issue which has apparently been bothering him since spring training, per Kubatko. The Orioles seem confident the injury is minor, and Voth could be back after spending the 15-day minumum on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Shelved with elbow discomfort
The Orioles placed Voth on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow discomfort.
Voth will be shut down after he recorded just one out while allowing two earned runs on three hits and one walk in a relief appearance in Tuesday's 11-6 win over the Blue Jays. The Orioles will presumably send Voth in for further testing to determine whether he's dealing with an elbow strain or anything more severe than soreness or inflammation. Baltimore called up right-hander Reed Garrett from Triple-A Norfolk to take Voth's spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Takes extra-inning loss
Voth (1-2) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning, taking the extra-inning loss Tuesday versus the Brewers.
Voth was called on for another short assignment Tuesday, his second since serving as a primary pitcher May 31 versus the Guardians. This one didn't go particularly well, and he has now given up six runs (four earned) over nine innings across his last five appearances. The Orioles haven't revealed their rotation for this weekend's series versus the Royals -- it's still possible Voth could make a start or serve as a bulk reliever in one of those three games. There's also a chance Baltimore recalls Cole Irvin, who has pitched to a 3.21 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 22:4 K:BB over 42 innings at Triple-A Norfolk. Irvin hasn't pitched for the Tides since May 31, and the affiliate's pitching plans beyond Wednesday are yet to be determined. Voth would likely return to the bullpen full-time if Irvin were promoted.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Makes relief appearance
Voth struck out one in a perfect inning of relief during Sunday's 8-3 win over the Giants.
Voth made his last appearance versus Cleveland in a bulk relief role, but Baltimore is skipping his turn in the rotation thanks to days off last Thursday and this Monday. This was his first scoreless outing in his last four appearances. Voth has been more effective as a reliever, and he may still follow an opener in his next game, which is tentatively scheduled to come over the weekend at home versus the Royals. As such, Sunday's appearance seems to be just to keep him on schedule. He has a 4.55 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB through 29.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Struggles in primary role
Voth allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three over 2.1 innings Wednesday versus the Guardians. He did not factor in the decision.
Voth has served as a long reliever for much of the season, but he was tabbed for a primary-pitcher assignment behind opener Keegan Akin in this contest. It didn't go very well, as Voth struggled in the third and fourth innings, and the rest of the Orioles' bullpen didn't fare much better. Over 14 innings in May, Voth pitched to a respectable 3.86 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP. He's at a 4.71 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB through 28.2 innings overall. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch next week in Milwaukee if he continues to fill the fifth-starter role opened up by Grayson Rodriguez's demotion to Triple-A Norfolk. Voth could also end up back in the bullpen if the Orioles opt to give Cole Irvin another chance in the rotation soon.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Serving as bulk reliever
Voth will serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Keegan Akin in Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.
Though the Orioles are bypassing him for a start, Voth will still effectively be taking the rotation spot of Grayson Rodriguez, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk last week. In his most recent relief outing five days ago against the Rangers, Voth covered 3.2 innings, so he should be able to provide the Orioles with a decent amount of length out of the bullpen....

Orioles' Austin Voth: Joining rotation Wednesday
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Voth will either start or serve as a bulk reliever in Wednesday's game versus the Guardians, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.
The rotation spot had previously been occupied by Grayson Rodriguez, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk over the weekend. All 18 of Voth's appearances this season have been in relief, although he has plenty of past starting experience and went 3.2 innings in his last outing May 26.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Awarded win Sunday
Voth (1-1) walked two and struck out two over two scoreless and hitless innings, earning the win Sunday over the Tigers.
This was just the third time in 10 appearances this season that Voth wasn't changed with a run. All three of his scoreless efforts have come over his last four outings. The right-hander has a 5.52 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB across 14.2 innings as a low-leverage reliever this year. He's also picked up two holds. Voth's biggest problem has been home runs -- he gave up five long balls over his first five appearances but has since kept the ball in the yard.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Austin Voth: Takes loss Wednesday
Voth (0-1) allowed three runs on four hits and struck out three over 1.1 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Rangers.
Voth was responsible for Josh Jung's tiebreaking two-run home run in the sixth inning as well as a Nathaniel Lowe RBI double in the seventh. The 30-year-old Voth was thought to be in the mix to take Kyle Bradish's (foot) place in the rotation, but the Orioles instead opted to call up top prospect Grayson Rodriguez, who allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over five innings in his major-league debut. It looks like Voth will likely spend much of 2023 in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen. He's given up four runs, including two homers, across his first 2.1 innings this season.... See More ...

Orioles' Austin Voth: Could be needed for spot start
Voth is an option to start for the Orioles on Tuesday versus the Rangers after scheduled starter Tyler Wells was needed in relief Monday, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.
Voth is currently stationed in the Orioles' bullpen and made a one-inning relief appearance Saturday. He was stretched out in spring training, though, and the hope is that he could give the O's a little length. Baltimore could also go with Kyle Gibson on Tuesday on normal rest and pitch Voth on Wednesday in Gibson's original slot.... See More ... See Less
