Orioles Sign Ty Wigginton

11:52am: Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun says Wigginton gets a two-year, $6MM deal.  The O’s had originally offered one year with a club option but upped their offer due to competition from the Giants and other clubs.

8:16am: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Orioles signed Ty Wigginton to a two-year contract.  Wigginton, 31, was non-tendered by the Astros after hitting .285/.350/.526 in 429 plate appearances while playing third base and left field.  His ’08 numbers are dampened by his poor performance away from Minute Maid Park.  Rosenthal says Wiggy will see time at first base and DH with the Orioles.
