The Orioles began the offseason with 22 of their own players that qualified as minor league free agents. While the club has not officially announced any signings yet, the O’s have re-signed five of those players: pitchers Josh Perrault, Ross Wolf, Chris George and Alfredo Simon and third baseman Scott Moore.
Perrault is a 27-year-old right-hander the O’s selected in the 2008 Rule 5 minor league draft from the Nationals’ organization. In 2009, between Bowie and Norfolk, he went 1-4, 2.13 with 18 saves. He allowed a .209 average in 72 innings with 18 walks and 74 strikeouts.
Perrault went 1-1, 3.38 in 11 games in the Arizona Fall League.
