The Orioles officially announced the one-year signing of 25-year-old outfielder Francisco Peguero on Saturday morning. Peguero hit .200 in 45 at-bats with the San Francisco Giants in the past two seasons, but is a .306 career hitter in the minors and had been considered one of the Giants better prospects over the years. He has been a center fielder but can play left or right and should be in the mix for a roster spot this spring. Here's executive vice president Dan Duquette on Peguero: “I like this kid we signed, Peguero.

Outfielder Francisco Peguero, who has been on the major league disabled list with right wrist tendinitis since the season began, will remain on the DL because he is dealing with a hamstring injury. Peguero's minor league rehab assignment expires Thursday. However, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Peguero will be recalled from the assignment but remain on the DL with a hamstring injury. Peguero is scheduled to have the hamstring examined by team doctors Thursday in Baltimore, Duquette said.

Orioles prospect Mike Wright, a towering right-hander pitching his first full season in Triple-A Norfolk, is frequently overlooked in conversations about the team's top pitching prospects. While fans clamor for the return of Dylan Bundy or the permanent arrival of Kevin Gausman in Baltimore, Wright has steadily climbed through the Orioles system all the way to Triple-A, where every arm is seen as a potential major league contributor. But Wright, who takes the hill Tuesday night looking to put a bow on a rough May in which he has allowed 20 earned runs in 23 innings, was recently touted to me by a scout as a future major league starter.

Steve Lombardozzi, who grew up in Columbia and graduated from Atholton High School, made his Orioles debut Wednesday, batting ninth and playing second base. “It definitely means something. It's very exciting to be part of this organization now,” said Lombardozzi, who was acquired from the Detroit Tigers in a late March trade for Alex Gonzalez. “I grew up coming to games here as a little kid so, yeah, I'm excited to get out there and get a game under my belt.” Lombardozzi said he's had a bunch of ticket requests, but it's nothing new for him. He played parts of three seasons with the Washington Nationals.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz threw five innings in a minor league game Tuesaday against the Minnesota Twins' Triple-A team at Ed Smith Stadium. Matusz, who pitched the entire season as a reliever last year, is continuing to be stretched out as if he were going to start. He threw 60 pitches Tuesday and mixed all four of his pitches in each inning. “I was able to get five ups, so I think that was the ultimate goal -- to continue to build, and I was able to get that work in,” Matusz said.

Orioles outfield prospect Henry Urrutia will undergo sports hernia surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. He will have the procedure in Philadelphia and it will be performed by Dr. William Meyers. Urrutia hasn't been in the Triple-A Norfolk lineup since April 27 and was hitting .220/.250/.293 with no homers and seven RBIs in 20 games for the Tides. The 27-year-old Urrutia had been dealing with the injury for more than two weeks and tried playing through it. That could partially explain Urrutia's slow start to the season after a strong spring training.

The Orioles are close to signing outfielder Francisco Peguero, according to an industry source. A deal is not complete and there are several teams interested in the 25-year-old, the source said Tuesday afternoon. Peguero, who was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants last week and non-tendered on Monday, spent most of the past season at Triple-A Fresno, hitting .316/.354/.408 in 70 games and playing at all three outfield positions. He missed 12 games after a concussion in June.

SARASOTA, Fla. - With minor league spring training games starting today, Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold will begin making trips to the Twin Lakes Park complex for at-bats there. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Reimold can have around 10 at-bats each day by going from field to field at the complex's cloverleaf as a designated hitter. There's no concern with Reimold, Showalter said, but the purpose is for the 30-year-old outfielder to get more plate appearances since he has been injured for a majority of the past two seasons.

We will know soon enough whether Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette strikes gold with the signing of former San Francisco Giants prospect Francisco Peguero, but Duquette is definitely making it clear how highly he thinks of the 25-year-old outfielder. Speaking with local media Sunday night here at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World, Duquette said Peguero, who has started just nine games in the major leagues over the past two seasons, can be an everyday ballplayer at the big league level.

For the past several weeks, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette turned to the Kansas City Royals in an attempt to acquire outfielder David Lough from the club's logjam of outfielders. It was one of many trade possibilities Duquette pursued in addressing the lack of a left-handed outfield bat created by the departure of left fielder Nate McLouth. And interestingly enough, the Orioles' selection in last week's Rule 5 draft paved the way for a trade, and on Wednesday, the Orioles acquired the 27-year-old Lough in exchange for infielder-designated hitter Danny Valencia.
