Jackson Holliday sent back to Orioles minors, Ryan McKenna returns

Good news for all of the people who were clamoring for the Orioles to demote Jackson Holliday after all of ten MLB games and bad news for everybody else: The O’s actually went and did it. In a surprise move on Friday afternoon, the team optioned the struggling top prospect back to Triple-A Norfolk.

Along with Holliday being sent to the minors, there was another move. Forgive my speaking in meme, but somehow, Ryan McKenna returned. The team selected McKenna’s contract from Triple-A Norfolk as a corresponding move. Also, catcher David Bañuelos was once again designated for assignment.
