Cleavinger named Orioles’ Minor League Pitcher of the Month

Delmarva Shorebirds relief pitcher Garrett Cleavinger has been named the Baltimore Orioles’ Pitcher of the Month for April.

The first Delmarva pitcher to earn the award from the organization since Donnie Hart in May of 2015, Cleavinger earned consideration by going 3-0, with a 1.84 ERA, in six appearances last month. He also racked up 21 strikeouts while allowing only 10 hits and walking eight batters.

The 22-year-old relief pitcher was drafted by the Orioles in the third round of the 2015 June Amateur Draft and currently ranks 26th on the club’s Major League prospect list by Baseball America.
