O's sign Vizcaino, Bond to Minor League deals

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles announced on Tuesday that they have signed pitcher Luis Vizcaino and infielder Brock Bond to Minor League contracts.

Both players will report to Minor League Spring Training at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota, Fla.

The 39-year-old Vizcaino last pitched in the Majors in 2009 with the Indians. The right-hander had a 1.40 ERA and 25 saves for Yucatan in the Mexican Winter League last season, and he is 35-30 with a 4.33 ERA in parts of 11 big league seasons.

Bond, 28, is a switch-hitter who owns a .300/.398/.377 line in seven Minor League seasons with the Giants. He was drafted in the 24th round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft and was in his first Major League Spring Training with San Francisco last spring, but didn't make the club. Bond spent the season at high Class A instead, hitting .240/.339/.324.
