O’s send Sarfate packing

January 27, 2010 | Drew Forrester

The Orioles have parted ways with right handed relief pitcher Dennis Sarfate, designating him for assignment in a move to make room for Miguel Tejada on the team’s 40-man roster.

Sarfate appeared in only 20 games a season ago after suffering from discomfort in his right hand and missing the final four months of the ’09 campaign.

He was originally acquired from the Houston Astros in December of 2007 in the deal that sent Miguel Tejada to Houston.
