The Baltimore Orioles and lefthander Wandy Rodriguez have agreed to terms on a minor league deal, reports MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli.

Rodriguez, 37, is an 11-year MLB veteran. He has previously played for the Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers. He was designated for assignment by the Rangers last July, and finished the season on a minor league deal with the Kansas City Royals.

Rodriguez spent spring training with the Astros, going 2–0 with a 3.95 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings, but did not make Houston’s final roster.
