Orioles agree to deal with veteran SS Gonzalez

The SportsXchange

The Baltimore Orioles agreed to a minor-league contract with infielder Alex Gonzalez on Friday.

Gonzalez is expected to compete for a spot on the Orioles' bench. He was released by the Milwaukee Brewers after hitting just .177 last season. Traditionally a shortstop, Gonzalez mostly played at first base in 2013.

Gonzalez, a lifetime .246 hitter, turns 37 next month.
