O’s sign INF Alexi Casilla

The Orioles have signed Alexi Casilla to a minor league contract. The switch hitting middle infielder doesn’t offer much with the bat, but has some speed and is capable of playing both 2B and SS. With the loss of Brian Roberts and with Manny Machado being injured Casilla can provide a bit more back up at 2B and could also be the back up middle infielder on the team. He also provides speed on the bases and can have some value as a pinch runner for a team not exactly blessed with speed from their starters.
