On Nov. 30, the Orioles acquired the left-handed-hitting catcher from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for cash considerations. Monell, who will turn 28 in March, made his major league debut last season and was 1-for-8 with one RBI and two runs scored. He will compete this spring with Steve Clevenger for the backup catcher role.
