The Magic Is Back


Recommended Posts

  • The Orioles announced that they’ve re-signed infielder Robert Andino to a minor league contract. Baltimore also confirmed its previously reported minors contract with Johnny Giavotella. The 32-year-old Andino will return to Baltimore for his second stint after previously spending the 2009-12 seasons with the Orioles. In 2016, Andino returned to the Majors following a two-year absence from the bigs and picked up seven singles in 24 plate appearances with the Marlins. He spent most of the season in Triple-A New Orleans, hitting .267/.319/.427. Capable of playing shortstop, second base and third base, Andino will likely provide the O’s with some infield depth in the upper minors. While Andino does receive an invite to Major League Spring Training (per Rich Dubroff of PressboxOnline, on Twitter), Ryan Flaherty is in line to be the team’s primary utility option.

If his defense is close he's a much better hitter than Flaherty IMO.

He was comparable in Baltimore actually:

  • Andino (1223 PA) - .629 OPS, 72 OPS+
  • Flaherty (1227 PA) - .642 OPS, 75 OPS+

Glad to have Andino back in the organization, especially if he's cool with spending time in Norfolk.  ^_^
