Vladimir Guerrero has signed a minor-league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, according to a major league source.
Guerrero, 37, will go to extended spring training with the Jays and proceed from there. His deal, worth $1.3 million, will be prorated over his time spent in the majors.
Guerrero ultimately can serve as a designated hitter, with Edwin Encarnacion at first.
The Orioles traded third-baseman Josh Bell over to Arizona last month, and the Diamondbacks now have sent over left-handed pitcher Mike Belfiore to complete that deal. Bell was mostly a disappointment in Baltimore after coming over from the Dodgers in the George Sherrill trade. His plate discipline went south, as he hit just .200/.221/.264 when he got a chance in the Majors and posted...
The Baltimore Orioles recalled starting pitcher Tommy Hunter from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday and placed outfielder Endy Chavez on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique.

OK, so the Orioles hitting three homers in a row to open a game may not be extremely fantasy relevant, but it's neat and hasn't been done before. All said and done, they hit five homers as a team in the first game of the double header. Sure teams have hit more, and Strasburg's 13 K's in 6 innings is more impressive, but I couldn't resist the urge to make a bird...
BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Orioles became the first AL team to open a game with three straight home runs, and Baltimore added two more long balls against Colby Lewis en route to a 6-5 victory over the Texas Rangers in a doubleheader opener Thursday.
Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis began the bottom of the first inning with homers to give Baltimore a lead it would not relinquish...

Vladimir Guerrero has agreed to a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The deal was announced Thursday by the Blue Jays before a four-game series at Minnesota. General manager Alex Anthopoulos cautioned there's no guarantee the 37-year-old will join the big league team. Toronto will send him to extended spring training in Dunedin, Fla., and assess his condition...
The Baltimore Orioles continue to roll as they are one-fifth through the season, and it is one great thing to see.
They won their second straight game and downed the Rays, 5-3, at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in front of an announced 32,862 fans on a wonderful night for a ballgame. It’s good to see the fans come back to the park, as the Orioles got a huge walkup crowd for Saturday’s...
That’s it. I can’t deny it anymore.
The Orioles are real; to deny it at this point is to deny math, logic and reality.
The Birds did get beaten up by the Rangers a bit, but who hasn’t. The Orioles still have the second-best record in the American League, lead the league in homers, are getting solid starting pitching and shut down bullpen work.
This is not a fluke. Repeat...
