More Minors signings
I’m a little late to this party, but the Orioles signed a trio of Minor League pitchers tonight according to Baseball America. They are right-handers Chris Jakubauskas and Mark Worrell and lefty James Houser.
None of the three have been invited to big league Spring Training. The 26-year-old Houser, a former Rays second-round Draft pick, has just one Major League appearance to his credit, 1 1/3 innings in a game against the Florida Marlins in 2010.
The 32-year-old Jakubauskas pitched in one game for the Pirates last year and was with the Mariners in 2009. He is a career 6-8 with a 5.48 ERA.
Worrell, 27, appeared in four games for the Cardinals in 2008, all in relief.
