The Orioles have signed 26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Kyle Hudson to a minor league deal.  Hudson played in 109 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies and Rays last year and he was 107 of 406 (.264 avg, .621 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 0 homers, 25 RBIs and 22 stolen bases.  Hudson’s only major league experience came back in 2011 with the Orioles.  Hudson played in 14 games for the O’s in 2011 and he was 4 for 28 (.143 avg, .286 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Hudson will likely start the 2013 season in AAA-ball for the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed Todd Redmond off waivers

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed 27-year old righty starting pitcher Todd Redmond off waivers from the Reds.  He pitched in 26 games (25 starts) in AAA-ball for the Reds and Braves last year and he was 8-11 with a 3.63 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  He started 1 game for the Reds last year (his major league debut) and he was 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA and a 3.60 WHIP.  Redmond will likely start the 2013 season in AAA-ball for the Orioles.  The Orioles have designated outfielder Trayvon Robinson for assignment to make room on the roster for Redmond.  It’s doubtful that Robinson will clear waivers, so the Orioles will need to try to deal him in the next week or so.

UPDATE:  (2/15/2013) – Trayvon Robinson has been outrighted to AAA, as he did clear waivers.

UPDATE:  (3/23/2013) – Todd Redmond has been lost on waivers to the Blue Jays.  He pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in spring training for the Orioles and he was 2-0 with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  This is no loss for the O’s moving forward.
