The Orioles have agreed to terms with reliever Ryan Webb on a two-year, $4.5-million deal, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman has confirmed. The contract is pending a physical.

Webb, 27 and right-handed, in 2013 logged a 2.91 ERA 2.00 K/BB in 80 1/3 innings for the Marlins. For his career, he's pitched to a 3.29 ERA (118 ERA+) across 266 games, all relief appearances.

On the upside, Webb keeps the ball on the ground and in the park. On the downside, he has middling command numbers and platoon issues -- the latter thanks largely to his low arm slot.
