The Baltimore Orioles have signed right handed pitcher Luis Ayala to a major league deal, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN. Because it's likely to be a major league deal, Kubatko suggests a 40-man move should follow. Ken Rosenthal notes an option year might be a part of the deal.

Ayala, 34, has 7 seasons under his belt and has a career 3.47 ERA, 5.9 K/9, and 2.3 BB/9. He appeared in 52 games for the Yankees last season and did well with just a 2.09 ERA. Ayala has earned almost one and a half wins above replacement for his career.
