      Orioles' Paul Janish: Re-signs with Orioles

      Janish agreed to a minor league contract with the Orioles on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. After being non-tendered by the Orioles in December, Janish will return to the organization on a minor league contract. He provides solid defense up the middle, but as Kubatko notes, Ryan Flaherty will likely serve as the club's utility infielder this season, meaning that Janish will likely start the year at Triple-A Norfolk provided that starting shortstop J.J Hardy remains healthy.

      Paul Janish: Non-tendered by Orioles

The 33-year-old has been able to hang around for most of the past eight years thanks to his abilities in the field, but his defense at short is starting to slip. Janish is still capable of filling an organizational depth need, but it's possible his time in the majors is up.

      Orioles' Paul Janish progressing toward playing in games

      Orioles infielder Paul Janish has thrown the last three days and took batting practice on the field Thursday for the first time since undergoing elbow surgery in February. "That was good," Janish said, per "At this point, the throwing has gone really well. I don't have a really good estimate in terms of how long the throwing program is going to take, but I don't think it's going to be too long, so it looks like I'll play for the last couple weeks of camp, hopefully." Janish is still hoping to make his spring debut March 20 or March 21. "It's optimistic," he said. "That would be next Friday. It's a feasible option, but like I said, it's optimistic. But probably, assuming everything goes well over the next week, sometime in that timeframe or next weekend being in the mix to hopefully play in games. "That's not entirely my decision, so I'll be at the disposal of the trainers, but health-wise I'm feeling good and I think we're going to be in the clear in terms of having the opportunity to play while we're down here, which ultimately was my goal."

      Orioles shortstop Paul Janish fielded grounders for 20-25 minutes Tuesday and still intends to throw for the first time this weekend since undergoing elbow surgery in February, per Janish is still aiming to play in a spring game either March 20 or March 21. "It went really well," Janish said. "I was moving around and relubricating everything, so to speak. It's not just the ground balls, it's the legs and getting everything going, getting the body moving in those ways again. It went as well as it could, to be honest. "Now it's getting on a consistent schedule of doing that stuff so I can get back into baseball shape and hopefully this weekend I'll have the opportunity to start throwing. "As far as hitting, that's not as big of a deal. I can actually swing right now, hit off a tee and stuff. But in terms of getting in BP groups and start hitting live, that's probably going to be accordance with throwing, so I'd imagine this weekend."
