Orioles sign Tim Smith to minor-league deal

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Baltimore adds some more minor-league depth with the 26-year-old outfielder.

The Baltimore Orioles have signed outfielder Tim Smith to a minor-league deal, but have not included an invitation to big-league spring training, reports Roch Kubatko of MASN:

The Orioles have signed outfielder Tim Smith, 26, to a minor league deal. He hasn't received an invitation to spring training.

Smith tweeted the news earlier tonight, and a club official confirmed the signing.

A seventh-round pick by the Texas Rangers in the 2007 draft, Smith spent last season in the Atlanta Braves organization, where he hit .288/.372/.386 with three home runs in 70 games between Single- and Double-A.

The left-handed hitting Canadian has six professional seasons under his belt -- and is a career .303/.371/.448 hitter with 44 home runs -- but has yet to play above Double-A. Smith has playing time at all three outfield positions but has primarily roamed the outfield grass as a left fielder.

Smith helped Canada win the gold medal in the 2011 Pan Am Games and also represented his home country in the 2009 Baseball World Cup.
