The Baltimore Orioles have signed 37-year old lefty starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league deal. Rodriguez pitched in 17 games (15 starts) for the Texas Rangers last year and he was 6-4 with a 4.90 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. Rodriguez has now pitched in 275 games (263 starts) in his first 11 years in the Major Leagues and he is 97-98 with a 4.10 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. He will start his time with the Orioles in AAA-ball. He pitched good for the Astros this spring, but he was one of their final cuts. It never hurts to give a guy a shot like Rodriguez on a minor league deal.
