The Orioles have agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Ryan Webb on a two-year, $4.5 million deal, as first reported by Jonah Keri of Grantland. The contract, pending a physical, has been confirmed by other media.
Webb, 27, was 2-6 with a 2.91 ERA in 80 1/3 innings with the Marlins in 2013. He was non-tendered by the team.
He has posted a 3.29 ERA in 266 games as a reliever in five MLB seasons with the Padres and Marlins.
The Orioles were in the market for right-handed relievers after trading closer Jim Johnson to the A's earlier in the week.
