Weekly Wrap

While the Orioles have yet to make a big splash this offseason, they made various minor moves this week, including the addition of Adam Greenberg.

Greenberg, who many remember from the incident in 2005 where he was beaned by the first pitch he ever saw in the major leagues, agreed to a minor league deal with the Orioles yesterday.

Greenberg had his second major league at-bat last year with the Marlins, which can be seen here.

Three other players inked minor league deals this week. First baseman Travis Ishikawa and left-handers Daniel Schlereth and Zach Braddock signed minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.

As the Orioles are seeking starting pitchers, they are in talks with Joe Saunders. Meanwhile, former Oriole Dana Eveland has signed a deal with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Professional Baseball League.

Matt Hobgood, the Birds’ first-round pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, has received good news on his shoulder, which underwent surgery in April. For more on Hobgood, click here.
