The Baltimore Orioles have announced that they have signed outfielder Quintin Berry to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to Spring Training. The left-handed hitter is going in to his age twenty-nine season, where he will be looking to finally find a consistent organization home. Berry, 29, made his major league debut two years ago with the Detroit Tigers, hitting .258/.330/.354 with 10 doubles, two homers, 29 RBIs and 21 stolen bases in 330 plate appearances. Berry has moved teams many, many times. He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2006 MLB draft by the Philadelphia Phillies, he spent four and a half season’s with the organization before getting designated for assignment, and got claimed by the San Diego Padres. Later, Berry was claimed by the New York Mets from the Padres in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft. The Mets released Berry during spring training in 2011 and Berry signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds. After that, Berry signed a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers. Before Opening Day 2013, Berry was sent down to the Triple-A Toledo and was designated for assignment by the Tigers. He was then claimed off waivers by the Kansas City Royals, who optioned him to Triple-A Omaha. Later in the season, Berry was traded to the Boston Red Sox for Clayton Mortensen. Mostly known for his speed on the bases, Berry is a perfect 29-for-29 on stolen-base attempts in his big league career, including the playoffs. Despite not receiving a plate appearance, he played a role for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox last season, stealing three bases in the postseason. The Baltimore Orioles currently have a large amount of outfield depth, including Adam Jones, who Berry is close friends with, Steve Pearce, Nolan Reimold, Nick Markakis, Francisco Peguero, and Henry Urrutia. Meaning, Berry’s chances of making the big league roster are slim. The post Baltimore Orioles agree to a Minor League deal with Quintin Berry appeared first on UTN Sports.
