The Baltimore Orioles designated College of the Canyons product Dana Eveland for assignment on Saturday.

College of the Canyons product Dana Eveland’s attempt at a relief role with the Baltimore Orioles has come to an end, at least for now.

Baltimore designated the left-handed pitcher for assignment on Saturday in favor of right-hander Miguel Socolovich, according to the Baltimore Orioles official website.

Eveland will have to wait until Monday to see if he is claimed off waivers by another team.

If he clears waivers, he will report to the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate, Norfolk.

If he refuses to report, MLB rules dictate that the team must either release him, making him a free agent, or keep him on the major league roster.

The seven-year veteran out of COC has already cleared waivers once this season, after being waived during spring training, the Orioles’ site reported.

In 14 games in 2012, Eveland had a 4.73 ERA and 1.39 WHIP, while pitching mostly out of the bullpen, with two starts and an 0-1 record.

He appeared in Friday’s game against Detroit, tossing 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on three hits.

The Orioles sit eight games behind New York in the American League East and are tied with the Angels at the top of the American League Wild Card standings.
