Orioles signed RHP Jose Acevedo to a minor league contract.
Acevedo should have gotten away from the Rockies when he had the chance a year ago. Instead, he ended up back at Triple-A Colorado Springs and he posted a 5.59 ERA in 15 starts. Signing on with the team employing Leo Mazzone was a good idea if he's going to work his way back to the majors. He could turn out to be a useful middle reliever, though he probably won't make the team out of spring training.
