Left-handed pitcher Vidal Nuño was with the Dodgers for just over three months last offseason but was only in uniform for about a week.


Nuño was acquired on Nov. 7, 2016 from the Mariners in exchange for catcher Carlos Ruiz, who had a club option for 2017 that the Dodgers were likely to decline.

Nuño reported to spring training at Camelback Ranch with pitchers and catchers in February.


Before the Cactus League schedule even started, Nuño was traded to the Orioles on Feb. 19 for minor league pitcher Ryan Moseley.

Nuño had a 10.43 ERA in 12 relief appearances with Baltimore, allowing 17 runs on 23 hits in 14⅔ innings, with 10 walks and 13 strikeouts. The southpaw also posted a 4.05 ERA in 19 games with Triple-A Norfolk, with 30 strikeouts and seven walks in 26⅔ innings.
