Orioles sign free agent RHP Ryan Webb


            The Orioles today announced that they have signed free agent RHP RYAN WEBB to a two-year contract.

                Webb, 27, spent 2013 with Miami, posting a 2.91 ERA and setting career-highs in games (66), innings pitched (80.1 - 4th most among NL relievers), strikeouts (54) and WHIP (1.21). He also posted a 2.65 ERA (37.1IP, 11ER) and 4.67 K/BB ratio in 37.1 innings in the second half.

                Originally selected by the A's in the 4th round of the 2004 First Year Player Draft, Webb has averaged a 1.99 groundball-to-flyball ratio in his five season major league career, pitching to a 3.29 ERA (276.0IP, 101ER) in 266 appearances for San Diego and the Marlins. He is one of 17 players in the National League to make at least 60 appearances and pitch at least 60 innings in both 2012 and 2013.

                With this move, the Orioles now have 38 players on the 40-man roster.
