Orioles Sign Ty Wigginton

Two years, $6 million, which may strike those who remember Wigginton only from his Pirate days as odd, but is actually quite a good deal when one considers that Wigginton hit .285/.350/.526 while playing both third and outfield last year. The O's have a crowded outfield and actually got pretty good play at the corners last year from Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora, but a team can always make room for a player who slugs in the .500s (or, okay, high .400s) and can at least fake his way around multiple positions. This deal could be bad if it denies opportunities to any of the Orioles' young outfielders, but if not, it's just fine. Nice offseason the O's are having.
