The Baltimore Orioles have signed Robert Andino to a 1-year deal, according to the team. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun notes the Andino had asked for $1.6 million, but the team countered with $1 million. Connolly says the two sides agreed at the midpoint, making the contract worth $1.3 million.
Andino, 27, enters his 8th season in the Majors, and his 4th with the Orioles. He's your standard utility guy, seeing most of his time at 2B, but subbing in at 3B, SS, and in both outfield corners. Andino is a career .245 / .302 / .331 hitter, but managed to squeak out a .263 average in 2011.
