The Orioles added defensive-minded outfielder Craig Gentry on Saturday, signing the veteran 33-year-old to a minor league contract.
Gentry is a career .261/.335/.333 hitter over parts of eight major league seasons with the Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels.
“I feel like my speed and defense can pretty much help a lot of teams,” Gentry said. “Plus, I knew a lot of guys here. I’ve played with a lot of guys, I know a lot of the coaching staff, so it just seemed like a great fit. They were interested and that late in the offseason you’re kind of scrambling around. So, they were interested and I thought it would be a great opportunity.”
His best season...
