Orioles Sign Conor Jackson

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

Baltimore looks to add depth by signing Conor Jackson to a minor-league deal.

Conor Jackson has signed a minor-league contract with the Baltimore Orioles, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. Terms of the contract have not been made available and the deal is still pending a physical.

Jackson has had success at the Major League level. Most notably with the Arizona Diamondbacks where he enjoyed career highs in RBI (79) in 2006, HRs (15) in 2006 and 2007, Batting Average (.300) in 2008, and on-base percentage (.376) in 2008.

The 30 year-old Jackson has struggled since suffering from Valley Fever and has not played more than 114 games in a season at the Major League level since 2008. He has been a member of several organizations since that time, most notably the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox.

Jackson spent 2012 with the Chicago White Sox AAA affiliate Charlotte Knights where he hit .277 with 9 homers and 41 RBI.

With the Orioles decision to non-tender Mark Reynolds, Conor Jackson may be a cost effective way to add organizational depth at first base.
