The St. Louis Cardinals added some depth to their bullpen on Monday, claiming reliever Ryan Meisinger off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles.

The 24-year-old righty posted strong numbers in the minors in 2018 but struggled at the Major League level. Meisinger posted a 3.13 ERA over 32 games between Double-A and Triple-A for the Orioles. He struck out 21 over 21.0 innings in 18 games (one start) but allow 15 runs in the process.

The club’s 40-man roster is currently at capacity.
