It would seem that the mysterious case of Tyler Colvin is coming to a close. With this case, though, it looks like Colvin will be able to sign with the Orioles.
after finding tyler colvin still has back issue, orioles will give him a minors deal but no majors deal. so he remains a FA

Colvin was outrighted by the Colorado Rockies after posting a subpar, injury shortened season. He had been dealing with a disc injury for the season and missed all of July and August. It appears that that injury is keeping him from getting a major league deal with Baltimore.
Heyman informed me that the Orioles have, in fact, offered Colvin the minor league deal but he remains a Free Agent because he still has not accepted the offer.
