Armando Leisdeker Gabino (born August 31, 1983) is a professional baseball pitcher who is with the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.

Cleveland Indians (2004)[edit]

Gabino was originally signed by the Cleveland Indians on April 19, 2001.[1] He started his career as a third baseman, but the Indians converted him into a pitcher in 2004.[2] After the season, the Minnesota Twins drafted him in the 2004 Rule 5 Draft.[3]

Minnesota Twins (2009)[edit]

Gabino got off to a dreadful start with the Twins, posting an 8.10 ERA with the rookie league Elizabethton Twins. Next year, however, he improved and move up to single-A. After continued success in the minors, the Twins called up Gabino on August 21, 2009.[4] However, he did not pitch well and was subsequently returned to the minors. The Baltimore Orioles claimed him on waivers after the season.[5]

Baltimore Orioles (2009–2011)[edit]

Shortly after signing with the Orioles, on February 9, 2010, he was designated for assignment. He cleared waivers and was sent to the Norfolk Tides, the Orioles triple-A affiliate.[6] However, after stellar pitching in Norfolk, the Orioles called him up on August 5 to replace the injured David Hernandez.[7] Once again, however, he failed to pitch well, and he was sent down on August 28 as the Orioles activated pitcher Jim Johnson from the disabled list.[8]
