Pitchers Mike Linskey and David Martinez became the latest players from the 40-man roster to sign 1991 contracts with the Baltimore Orioles.
Both agreed yesterday to one-year deals for slightly above $100,000, the major-league minimum.
Linskey, a Baltimore-born left-hander, was 7-9 with a 3.58 ERA with the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings after blitzing through the Eastern League with the Class AA Hagerstown Suns (7-1, 1.47 ERA).
Martinez was acquired from the California Angels in the Dave Gallagher deal. He is pitching for Obregon in the Mexican Pacific League.
