Orioles demote Olson, for now

Former Cal Poly left-hander Garrett Olson was demoted by the Baltimore Orioles today in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Olson was reassigned to the team’s minor league camp but could be called up to the majors later this spring, according to the Washington Post.
"They told me to keep doing what I'm doing and keep the ball down in the zone and keep working on every pitch, stay healthy and see what I can do down there," Olson told the paper. "I felt like I was a part of this group. I made a lot of friends here. I felt I got a lot of positive influence from people. I learned a lot."
See the complete Washington Post story below as well as a feature the Post ran on Olson earlier in the month.
While we’re talking about Mustangs on the diamond, check out the feature on Cal Poly softball standout Lisa Modglin. I included the link below.
