Orioles re-signed IF Alexi Casilla to a minor league contract.
The deal also includes an invitation to big league camp. The Orioles previously declined their $3 million option on Casilla for 2014, giving them the opportunity to get him back on a much more team-friendly deal. Casilla could only muster a .563 OPS in 2013, but provides a little bit of speed and plus-defense at second base or shortstop.

Orioles declined INF Alexi Casilla's $3 million option for 2014.
They'll pay him a $200,000 buyout instead. Casilla batted a putrid .214/.268/.295 with one home run and nine steals over 62 games this season for the O's. He'll surely have to settle for a utility job this winter.
