Baltimore Orioles pitcher Yoon Suk-min won't be able to play in the MLB this season.

Yoon was designated for assignment on Sunday, and removed from the 40-man roster.

The fact that the Orioles took Yoon off the 40-man roster indicates that they have no intention to let him play.

"It seems that the Orioles took Yoon off the roster to make room for other prospects because he has not been playing well in the minor leagues," said Min Hoon-ki, a baseball commentator.

The roster will expand from 25 players to 40 on Sept. 2, and those on the 40-man roster will be able to play this season.
