Baltimore Orioles sign Felix Hernandez to a Minor League Contract

The Baltimore Orioles have announced recently that they have signed Felix Hernandez to a Minor League Contract.

Hernandez, who is a former Cy Young Award winner, did not get the chance to pitch in 2020, but has been looking for a chance to make a positive impact with one of the Major League Baseball Clubs.

The righty has been working hard, as he was last seen trying to make the Atlanta Braves Opening Day roster on a Minor League deal. He performed well during Spring Training, as he had allowed three runs and sitting down 14 batters in 13 2/3 innings.

Hernandez has a 5.42 ERA over 60 games (59 starts) during his time with the Seattle Mariners. He was able to make his MLB debut with the Mariners at age 19 in 2005, and has a reputation for being a great pitcher.

The righty had been able to record a 3.16 ERA with 2.26 strikeouts in 2,415 innings over his first 12 seasons. Thanks to his fine pitching he was able to win the American League Cy Young Award in 2010, as he was able to lead the Majors in ERA (2.27) at the time.

The Orioles continue bolster their minor league roster with some other great additions, as they have signed Seth Mejias-Brean, Malquin Canelo, Wade LeBlanc, Dustin Knight, Konner Wade and Spenser Watkins.
