Designated hitter Trey Mancini and outfielders Dariel Alvarez, Joey Rickard, Anthony Santander and Aneury Tavarez also signed. Santander and Tavarez were Rule 5 Draft picks this past December.

The O's now have every member on their 40-man roster under contract for this season.

Roster trimmed by four

The Orioles reduced its roster by four on Wednesday when it optioned Bridwell and Garcia to Triple-A Norfolk and reassigned left-handed pitcher Jed Bradley and catcher Yermin Mercedes to Minor League camp.

Bridwell, who appeared in two games for the Orioles last year, had a 6.75 ERA in four games this spring.

Garcia, who was carried on the Major League roster in 2015 as a Rule 5 Draft pick, was 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA in three games.

Bradley pitched two hitless innings and Mercedes was 1-for-2 (.500) with one RBI.

The moves leave the Orioles with 51 players on their camp roster.
