Baltimore Orioles sign outfielder Tyler Colvin


According to Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a deal with free agent outfielder Tyler Colvin.


Colvin had a rough year in 2013 with the Colorado Rockies. In just 27 games, he had 75 at bats and collected just 12 hits and three walks with three extra base hits, all home runs. He spent part of the year in the minor leagues and was eventually shut down due to disc issues in his back.

However, in 2012, Colvin had a solid year. He played in 136 games, batting .290, posing an on-base percentage of  .327 and slugging .531. He hit 18 home runs, 27 doubles, 10 triples and drove in  72 runs.

Colvin is still just 28 years old and if he can stay healthy, he could be a nice, under-the-radar pickup for the Orioles.
