Os add depth in Martinez

BALTIMORE— The Orioles have signed infielder Osvaldo (Ozzie) Martinez to a Minor League contract, a move that should help the organization’s depth, particularly at shortstop.

Martinez, 26, spent most of last year with Triple-A Gwinnett (Atlanta Braves) and he hit .288/.340/.350. He was acquired in a May trade from the Dodgers organization, where he played 33 games at Double-A to start the 2014 season.

Martinez has played in the Majors in parts of two seasons for the Marlins, in 2010 and 2011, and was originally drafted by Florida in the 11th round of the 2006 amateur draft. He will most likely slot in at the Orioles Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk with the organization wanting to upgrade at shortstop in the offseason.

Martinez has the most experience in his pro career at shortstop, although he has played second and third base as well as the outfield. He owns a career .258/.300/.348 line in 34 games in the big leagues.

Martinez’s signing was first reported by Baseball America.
