SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Outfielder Eric Young Jr. has agreed to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles and will report to major league spring training.
The 33-year-old hit .202 with one home run and eight RBIs in 41 games for the Los Angeles Angels last year.
Young has a .245 average in 10 big league seasons with Colorado, the New York Yankees, New York Mets, Atlanta and the Angels and Atlanta. He led the NL with 46 stolen bases in 2013.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The young players on the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles have endured a whole lot of losses in front of quite a few small crowds this season.
Some days, however, are worth savoring.
Rookie Cedric Mullins had a career-high four hits, Jonathan Villar and Adam Jones homered and the Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brad Keller kept up his recent pitching surge with another strong outing.
Keller gave up a home run to the first batter of the game — Cedric Mullins — but quickly settled in to pitch eight strong innings in the Kansas City Royals' 9-2 win over the Baltimore Royals in a matchup of the teams with the worst records in the majors.
