The Baltimore Orioles sign Steve Trachsel

The Orioles have signed 37-year old righty starter Steve Trachsel to a minor league contract. Trachsel pitched in 29 games (all starts) for the Orioles and Cubs last season and he was 7-11 with a 4.90 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. Trachsel has now pitched in 410 games (409 starts) in his major league career and he is 141-154 with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. This was a nice low risk move for the Orioles because they will likely be able to trade Trachsel again at the trade deadline again this season if he performs decent for them in the first half of 2008.
