The O's designate Jack Cust for assignment.

Well, it appears that Jack Cust's days as an Oriole are numbered. It is doubtful that he will clear waivers meaning some other team is going to pick up the man with a .436 career minor league on-base percentage. Granted he hasn't done much in the majors yet but he's never really gotten the long look that he needs. Last year the O's called him up on a few occasions only to leave him rotting on the bench while giving at bats to the ancient BJ Surhoff.
