Orioles To Sign Nick Green

5:47pm: SI.com's Jon Heyman reports that Green will earn $600K if he makes the big league team (Twitter link).

3:24pm: The Orioles have agreed to sign Nick Green to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to Spring Training, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun (Twitter link). The sides appeared to be close to a deal in December, when the Orioles re-signed Cesar Izturis

Green appeared in 14 big league games for the Blue Jays and Dodgers last year. The 32-year-old has a .237/.305/.348 line in 1131 big league plate appearances over the course of six big league seasons. Green figures to compete with Robert Andino and Brendan Harris for a utility job.

  1. Wasnt this originally announced when the Izturis signing was?

  2. Sad day when you have to compete with Harris and Andino for a utility job. I think if you throw in Izturis you get a WAR of -7. For all the things to be excited about this year, our utility infielder spot is not one of them. Go O’s

    WTF? What they’ve got on the roster is better than this Guy. Take this money and put it towards Vlad. Andy, u have zero clue how to run a team this ERA. This isn’t 1989 with the cubs.

      it’s a minor league deal… also, MacPhail wasn’t GM of the Cubs in 1989, he was the GM of the Twins, between his two WS titles with that club. :)

    Not going to lie, this guy was a nice fill in for Boston a few years back. He can be a nice super-sub type player for the O’s.

    This is a solid signing for if anything, minor league depth. If anything, he will push harris and andino to play better, if not straight beat them out.

    This has no effect on a Vlad signing, lets be honest
