Orioles, Corey Patterson Agree To Terms

Outfielder Corey Patterson has agreed to terms with the Orioles, reports MASN's Roch Kubatko.  He'll report to extended spring training.  Patterson, 30, hit .292/.333/.478 in 418 Triple A plate appearances last year.

Patterson joined the Orioles in a January '06 trade with the Cubs, and was fairly useful in two seasons.  He reached free agency as a 28-year-old Scott Boras client, but could only find a minor league deal with the Reds.  He's since dropped Boras and spent time in the Washington, Milwaukee, and Seattle organizations, most recently opting out of his Mariners contract on March 31st.  The O's have an outfield opening given Felix Pie's lat injury.
