Straily, who was released by the Miami Marlins at the end of spring training, is set to make $575,000 from the Orioles plus an additional $250,000 if he is traded, Mish adds.
He will likely slot into Baltimore's rotation that currently includes Alex Cobb, Andrew Cashner, Dylan Bundy, and David Hess. Right-hander Nate Karns has also been used as an opener on two occasions but has pitched a total of four innings. It remains to be seen who will lose the spot.
The 30-year-old Straily spent the last two seasons in Miami after stints with the Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, and Cincinnati Reds.
Straily was very effective in his first season with the Marlins but scuffled in 2018 due to a forearm injury. He was limited to 23 starts, going 5-6 with a 4.12 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.
Other teams had apparently shown interest in signing the veteran hurler, as he received a few big-league offers before electing to sign with the Orioles, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
