SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Right-hander Logan Ondrusek, due to have his elbow examined next week by Dr. James Andrews, has been released by the Baltimore Orioles.

Ondrusek agreed in December to a non-guaranteed $650,000, one-year contract. The Orioles put him on waivers Wednesday and released him Friday.

Ondrusek is entitled to 30 days’ termination pay, $106,557. His locker at Baltimore’s spring training camp was taken over Thursday by pitcher Gabriel Ynoa.

If doctors determine Ondrusek is injured, there might be a grievance arguing he should not be released but instead placed on the disabled list.

Ondrusek complained of elbow discomfort after a March 6 game. He was examined by team doctors and has a March 20 appointment with Andrews, a renowned orthopedist.

Ondrusek signed with Baltimore last July after 1½ seasons in Japan, and the 32-year-old right-hander had a 9.95 ERA in seven games for the Orioles last season. In six major league seasons with Cincinnati and the Orioles, Ondrusek is 21-11 with a 4.03 ERA.
