Updates on Galarraga, Machado and Arrieta
*I’m told that the Orioles haven’t officially reached an agreement with right-hander Armando Galarraga, despite several reports that he signed a Minor League deal. They are still talking to him and there’s a good chance a deal get’s done, but as of early Wednesday evening there’s no agreement in place.
*In case you missed it, O’s prospect Manny Machado was named the top shortstop prospect in the game. Read more on that here.
*Orioles pitcher Jake Arrieta, coming off season-ending surgery to have a bone spur removed on his right elbow, threw to a a catcher for the first time on Monday and expects to be 100 percent with no restrictions for Spring Training. I’ll have a full story up on Arrieta, his rehab and his goal of reaching the 200-inning mark, up on Orioles.com later today.
