The Orioles have signed infielder Brock Bond and pitcher Luis Vizcaino to minor-league deals, MLB.com reports. Bond dealt with an oblique injury early last season then spent 2013 at the high Class A level after playing in Triple-A for two seasons. He hit .240/.339/.324 with three home runs, 39 RBI and six stolen bases in 367 at-bats with high Class A San Jose. Vizcaino, 39, last pitched in the majors in 2009. He spent 2013 with Yucatan of the Mexican League, going 1-3 with a 1.40 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 69:11 K:BB ratio in 45 innings.
Giants minor-leaguer Brock Bond, who has been dealing with an oblique injury all season, is joining Class A San Jose Friday. He will likely work in Class A in order to prove he is healthy and up to speed, before joining Triple-A Fresno, where he hit .332 in 106 games a year ago.
The San Francisco Giants completed another round of roster cuts Friday, optioning pitchers Dan Otero, Jake Dunning, Chris Heston and Sandy Rosario, shortstops Ehire Adrianza and Nick Noonan and outfielders Roger Kieschnick and Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno. Pitcher Edwin Escobar was sent to Class A San Jose. The team also reassigned Brett Bochy, Boof Bonser, Steve Edlefsen, Heath Hembree, Michael Kickham, Mitch Lively, Shane Loux, Ricky Oropesa, Adam Duvall, Brock Bond and Gary Brown to its minor-league camp.
