The Baltimore Orioles have signed relief pitcher Ryan Webb to a two-year deal.
Webb, 27, was non-tendered by the Miami Marlins this week after the club decided against going to arbitration with him. Projections had Webb getting just $1.5 million in arbitration and now the right hander will get $4.5 million over two seasons.
While Webb will be a fine addition to the bullpen his role is currently undefined. The Orioles recently traded away closer Jim Johnson leaving open the possibility that Webb could be in the mix for saves in Baltimore.
Webb finished last season with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 80 1/3 innings of work.
