Orioles sign 28-year-old infielder Chad Tracy to minor league deal

The Orioles have signed infielder Chad Tracy, the son of former major league manager Jim Tracy, to a minor league deal.

He's not to be confused with nine-year major leaguer Chad Tracy -- though I was guilty of confusing them today -- who has agreed to a minor league deal and spring training invitation with the Los Angeles Angels, according to a source.

The one the Orioles have signed is 28 and has never played in the major leagues. He has spent eight years in the minors, splitting 2013 between York of the independent Atlantic League and Omaha, the Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.

The right-handed hitting first baseman batted .187 with a .297 on-base percentage in 45 games with Omaha and .289 with a .369 on-base percentage in 58 games with York. He's a former third-round draft pick of the Texas Rangers,

This Chad Tracy's father, Jim, managed the Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies.
