Nationals sign first baseman away from Orioles
Sorry to tease you like that. But it is true. Sort of.
The Nationals announced seven minor league signings today, including Michael Aubrey, who spent parts of the past two seasons with the Orioles’ Triple-A Norfolk affiliate and spent 31 games with the big league club in 2009.
Aubrey, 28, was stuck in Triple-A all of last year despite the Orioles’ woes at first base and Aubrey’s 22 minor league homers, making it obvious he wasn’t in the team’s future.
Aubrey hit just .235 in 102 games with the Tides in 2010 after batting .289 in 31 games for the Orioles in 2009.
By the way, we still don’t officially know who the Orioles and Nationals will have at first base on Opening Day.
