The Orioles have signed left-hander Aaron Laffey, a Cumberland native and Allegany High graduate, to a minor league contract, the team announced Thursday.
The deal does not include an automatic invitation to major league spring training camp. Laffey will report to the organization’s minor league minicamp to open the spring, and from there, he would try to earn some innings in major league camp, according to a source.
Ultimately, he'd be competing for a rotation spot at Triple-A Norfolk.
Laffey, 28, has a 25-29 career record with a 4.45 ERA over parts of seven major league seasons with the Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets.
