Orioles Sign Outfielder

They've avoided arbitration.

Baltimore Orioles and outfielder Jake Cave have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract. 

Cave reportedly received a split contract with the Orioles, so his salary will ultimately depend on how much time he spends in the majors.
The twenty-nine-year-old outfielder was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Twins last month. This past season, Cave slashed .213/.260/.384, with five home runs, 20 RBIs, two stolen bases and 17 runs scored across 54 games played. 

He'll likely serve a part-time role in the Orioles' outfield next season. 

Cave is a former sixth-round pick by the New York Yankees in the 2011 MLB Draft. He's entering his sixth major league season.
