St. Louis Cardinals deal LHP Aquino to Orioles for cash

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals have traded left-handed pitcher Jayson Aquino to the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations.

Aquino was acquired by the Cardinals on a waiver claim from Cleveland on Dec. 9 and assigned to the 40-man roster. He was later designated for assignment ahead of Thursday's trade to Baltimore.

Aquino was signed as a non-drafted free agent out of the Dominican Republic by the Colorado Rockies in 2009.
