  • Uehara signs with Orioles

    Posted by simon c on 2009 January 7日 Wednesday

    A 2 year deal with details still to be hammered out. He’ll likely be their No.2 starter since the Orioles only have Gutherie in their vacant rotation.

    Two industry sources have confirmed that the Orioles have agreed in principle on a two-year deal with Japanese right-hander Koji Uehara.

    The deal is pending specific contract language and a physical, which is expected to occur possibly later this week, though an appointment in Baltimore has not been scheduled.

    Uehara gets the starting job that he wanted, and the Orioles get their foot in the door in the Japanese market (though only superstars seem to matter in this regard, don’t see many Rays, Phillies, or Astros apparel around Tokyo.)

      WOW! This is the first I am reading about this O’s move. But all day with work and Baltimore is talking only Ravnes at this point…so makes sense.

      Thanks!
