A few more minor signings
According to Baseball America, via mlbtraderumors.com, the Orioles have signed a few more pitchers for minor-league depth.
They are right-handers Chris Jakubauskas and Mark Worrell and lefty James Houser.
Like Nick Bierbrodt, whose signing was announced last week, none of the above trio has been invited to big league camp at this point. That could change as the Orioles re-evaluate the number of arms they need before pitchers and catchers report Feb. 14.
Jakubauskas, 32, pitched in 35 games with the Mariners in 2009 and one game with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2010. He is 6-8 with a 5.48 ERA in his big league career.
Worrell, 27, pitched four games in relief for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2008.
Houser, 26, made his debut June 24, 2010, pitching 1 1/3 innings and allowing three runs for the Florida Marlins in his lone big league appearance. He was a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Rays' in 2003.
