The wait on Jair Jurrjens is finally over. Three weeks after the right-hander reportedly agreed to a major league deal with the Orioles, the club announced Friday night that it has instead signed Jurrjens to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training. Jurrjens, 27, is expected to arrive in camp Saturday, in time for the team's first full-squad workout of the spring. According to sources, Jurrjens and the Orioles agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million major league deal (with $2.5 million more available in bonuses)

The Orioles have agreed to terms with veteran free-agent utility man Bill Hall, according to multiple industry sources. He will report to the club's Triple-A team in Norfolk and will replace Josh Bell, who was dealt to the Diamondbacks this weekend after he was designated for assignment. The Orioles like his glove at third base and his ability to hit for power against left-handed pitching. Hall spent most of his 10-year big-league career with Milwaukee, where he had a 35-homer, 85-RBI season in 2006, but the Orioles will be his seventh organization since the beginning of the 2009 season.

The Atlanta Braves have signed former Orioles pitcher Rodrigo Lopez to a minor league contract with an invitation to big league spring training, the team announced Monday. Lopez went 60-58 with a 4.72 ERA in 167 games (141 starts) for the Orioles from 2002 to 2006. His best season in Baltimore was in 2002, when the right-hander went 15-9 with a 3.57 ERA in 33 games (28 starts) and finished second in American League Rookie of the Year voting. However, he might be best remembered by many Orioles fans for his last season with the team, in which he went 9-18 in 36 games (29 starts)

Long before Saturday's midnight nontender deadline, the Orioles agreed to pre-arbitration deals with relievers Matt Albers and Cla Meredith on their 2010 contracts but did not offer a contract to Brian Bass, who now becomes a free agent. Bass, a 28-year-old right-hander, went 5-3 with a 4.90 ERA in 48 appearances in 2009 while serving as a long man out of the bullpen. The Orioles, who now have two open spots on their 40-man roster, have invited Bass back on a minor league deal. "It really has nothing to do with performance," Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said.

The Orioles have agreed to terms with former Cleveland Indians reliever Fernando Cabrera on a minor league contract for the rest of the season. Cabrera, a 25-year-old right-hander whose main asset is his powerful arm, is expected to report to Triple-A Norfolk and be called up in September. The Indians designated Cabrera for assignment Aug. 1 after he went 1-2 with a 5.61 ERA in 24 games. He was given his outright release Aug. 9, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays claimed him last week. Cabrera declined the waiver assignment.

Tony Saunders threw for Orioles officials yesterday at Camden Yards, a session that lasted about 10 minutes on an indoor mound. Not once did he give any thought to the possibility that his left arm could shatter again, he said, as it did twice while delivering pitches before his abrupt retirement in 2000. Not once did he ease up for fear of ending his comeback before it started. Saunders took it as a good sign that the movement on his cut fastball was a bigger issue than the level of his health.

Another member of the Orioles' pitching staff has gone on the disabled list. Omar Daal, recently banished from the rotation, was found to have tendinitis in his left shoulder. The Orioles put him on the DL yesterday, retroactive to Saturday, and recalled Rick Bauer from Triple-A Ottawa. Daal had a magnetic resonance imaging test Wednesday when tightness in the shoulder didn't subside. He experienced some discomfort the day after throwing three innings in last Friday's 4-2, 17-inning loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, and it persisted enough for him to approach the training staff.
