The Baltimore Orioles have signed Armando Galarraga.
He signed a minor league contract with the team. And will be invited to spring training with an opportunity to earn a spot in the rotation.
He made eight starts with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season. He struggled by going 3-4 with a 5.91 ERA.
He was traded prior to last season from the Detroit Tigers to the Diamondbacks. His most famous moment came when he had a no hitter blown by an umpire’s call in 2010.
His best season came in 2008, his first season in Detroit after being traded from the Texas Rangers. He had a 13-7 mark with a 3.73 ERA in 30 games.
