Signed LHP Johan Santana

According to Roch Kubatko the Orioles are very close to an agreement to sign LHP Johan Santana on a minor league contract. Santana, 34, last pitched in 2012 and has had multiple severe injuries over the past couple of seasons. The Orioles were reportedly at Santana’s tryout last week. Roch has reported that Santana would have to continue rehab before the season starts and is most likely a bullpen option.
