Ty Wigginton Signs Two-Year Contract with Baltimore Orioles

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Orioles have signed Ty Wigginton to a two-year contract.

Wigginton will receive $6 million for the two years, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Wiggy hit .285 with 23 home runs and 58 RBI with the Astros last season.

He will likely serve as a right-handed hitting first baseman and DH, replacing free agent Kevin Millar. He will also back up Melvin Mora at third base.

The Mets missed the boat on another former player that Fans can relate to. I guess $3 million a year was going way beyond what the Mets wanted to spend.
