Orioles sign Rey Navarro to major league deal.

Navarro has spent almost seven season in the minor leagues despite being only 24-years old. He has worked his way up the minor league ranks and now finds himself with a major league contract. However, it is hard to see Navarro having a positive impact for fantasy teams this season.

Orioles signed RHP Terry Doyle and OF Quincy Latimore to Minor League deals.

The Orioles are just building up some minor league depth here as neither Doyle nor Lattimore are going to find their way up to the bigs anytime soon.

Orioles have agreed to a minor league deal with INF Paul Janish.

Janish will provide some minor league depth but could also compete for a utility job in the infield. With minimal power and hardly any speed though, he is not fantasy relevant at all.

Orioles have selected the contracts of RHPs Tyler Wilson and Mike Wright.

Both will be added to the 40-man roster in time for the Rule 5 draft. Neither should be fantasy relevant this year though.

Orioles claimed Alex Hassan off waivers.

Hassan was just claimed by the A's from the Red Sox earlier this week and now appears to be on his way back to the AL East as a member of the Orioles organization. Hassan is a tweener player who has the talent to hit Triple-A pitching but is nothing more than a reserve outfielder on a major league roster.

Orioles have re-signed LHP Chris Jones and 3B Michael Almanzar to minor league contracts.

Jones has been toiling around the minors since 2007 and has spent the last two seasons working out of the bullpen at Triple-A Norfolk with the occasional spot-start. He's more suited as minor league depth for them so keep him off your fantasy radar. Almanzar is also depth for the organization. He's got low to mid-level pop in his bat, he doesn't make much contact and has trouble drawing walks. He won't be called up anytime in this millennium.

Orioles re-sign RHP Oliver Drake to a minor league contract.

Drake has seemingly been stuck at the Double-A level for a few years now and while he's got a solid double-Digit K/9 down there with better-than -average control, he still hasn't been able to clear that hurdle and advance. The Orioles are likely to start him at Triple-A this year and see how he fares.

Orioles signed Ozzie Martinez to a minor-league deal.

Martinez has been bumming around the minors since 2006 and will get a look from the Orioles now. He's got 22 home runs in 2,840 minor league at bats so there's little or no power to be had, and he's got a 42.7-percent success rate on the basepaths. He'll serve as minor league depth probably.

The Orioles and Nick Markakis have made significant progress on a four-year deal. They have been talking about $10-12 million a year.

Everyone involved has been fairly confident that the two sides will amicably meet and Markakis will sign a new deal with the Orioles very soon. It sounds as if they are just dotting the "I's" and crossing the "T's" at this point so expect everything to be settled soon.

Orioles' manager Buck Showalter said Manny Machado was taking ground balls in Sarasota and moving around and Matt Wieters visited with Dr. James Andrews Wednesday.

Machado was limited to 82 games last season as he dealt with a knee injuries that both delayed the start to his season and caused it to end early.
