Wigginton won't return to O's, agrees to terms with Colorado Rockies
Infielder Ty Wigginton, the Orioles' lone All-Star last season, will not be returning to Baltimore.
He has agreed to terms with the Colorado Rockies on a two-year deal worth $7.5 million. The deal includes a club option for 2013.
Wigginton, 33, hit .248 with 22 homers and 76 RBIs in 154 games for the Orioles in 2010. The 76 RBIs led the Orioles and he finished third on the team with 52 extra-base hits and 241 total bases.
The Orioles had interest in bringing the versatile Wigginton back, but that became unlikely with the acquisition of third baseman Mark Reynolds from the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday.
