Os sign Casilla

The Orioles have signed Alexi Casilla to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Major League Spring Training, the team announced on Friday night.

Cassila’s $3 million option for 2014 was declined earlier this winter  by Baltimore, but the departure of Brian Roberts and given that Manny Machado is coming off second-ending knee surgery gives the organization a need for more depth in the infield. Primarily a bench player last season, Casilla adds speed and versatility and can play second base, shortstop and third. The 29-year-old batted .214 in 62 games for the O’s in 2012.

Get the WHITE FLAG OUT! The Orioles just gave up!!!!!

Another middle utility infielder. The team NOW has 10 of them. WOW

The orioles could have cured this middle infield problem by signing one of the better utility guys in Skip Schumaker. He played all three outfield positions for the dodgers as well as 2nd and 3rd base. The Reds signed him. Casilla , Weeks, Flaherty and whoever else combined won’t make one good 2nd baseman. The out field cadre is also funny. Peguero, Lough, Berry etal are a joke.
