Baseball America's list of minor league free-agent signings yesterday included reliever Greg Burke, who inked a deal with the Orioles that doesn't include a spring training invitation.
Burke, 29, appeared in 48 games with the Padres in 2009 and went 3-3 with a 4.14 ERA. He spent last season with Triple-A Tucson, going 2-2 with a 5.70 ERA in 64 games.
The Padres signed Burke as an undrafted free agent out of Duke University in 2006.
The Orioles signed 27-year-old Mexican pitcher Miguel Gonzalez to a minor league deal, the pitcher told Fernando Ballesteros at Puro Béisbol (link in Spanish). Gonzalez posted decent strikeout rates across three levels in the Red Sox system last year after two years away from the minors. He told Ballesteros he will start off at Triple-A for the Orioles.
MLBTR has learned that the Orioles signed catcher Josh Johnson. The 29-year-old played the last three years in the Atlantic League but prior to that spent time with the Rays and Astros Triple-A affiliates.
