|

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles have signed Scott Savastano to a Minor League contract, the club announced on Friday.

The deal does not include an invite to Major League Spring Training, and the versatile 27-year-old will instead report to Minor League camp at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota, Fla.

Savastano, who came from Seattle's Minor League system, has played right field, left field, first base, second base, third base, shortstop, catcher and designated hitter. Savastano batted .235/.293/.328 in 58 games with Triple-A Tacoma in 2013, with three homers and 20 RBIs. He has spent all six of his seasons of pro ball in the Mariners' system.
