Orioles sign Luis Vizcaino & Brock Bond to Minor League deals
The Orioles announced on Tuesday that they have signed pitcher Luis Vizcaino and infielder Brock Bond to Minor League contracts.
Both players will report to Minor League Spring Training at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota, Fla.
The 39-year-old Vizcaino last pitched in the Majors in 2009, as part of the Cleveland Indians. The right-hander had a 1.40 ERA and 25 saves for Yucatan in the Mexican Winter League last season and is a career 35-30 with a 4.33 ERA in parts of 11 big league seasons.
Bond is a switch hitter who owns a .300/.398/.377 line in seven Minor League seasons with the Giants. Bond was drafted in the 24th round of the 2007 Draft and was in his first Major League Spring Training with San Francisco last spring, but failed to make the club. The 28-year-old spent the season at High-A instead, hitting .240/.339/.324.
