Beesball - Wieters Signs with O's

Proving yet again the power of money and the pull of the major leagues versus another year cracking books for tuition, Matt Wieters signed with the O's for a fraction of the sum he was asking bat 11:51pm, 9 minutes before the deadline.

Per, two other potential Jackets also inked deals:

  • In addition, Jarrod Parker signed with Arizona and Neil Ramirez signed with Texas.

  • The Houston Astros were unable to come to terms with IF Derek Dietrich. The Ohio native will begin classes at Tech next week. See story.
