Orioles Sign Cuban Outfielder Henry Urrutia

The Orioles have signed Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia for a bonus of $778,500, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.

Some more information from Badler:

Since Urrutia turned 25 in February and has played at least three seasons in Cuba’s top league, his bonus will not count against Baltimore’s $2.9 million bonus pool for the 2012-13 international signing period.

More information to come.
