BALTIMORE — Prior to the start of Saturday’s game against Detroit, the Orioles announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Jon Rauch to a minor-league deal to add relief pitching depth to the organization.

The 34-year-old Rauch will report to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and posted a 3.59 earned run average and 16 holds in 73 appearances with the New York Mets last year. He was released by the Marlins last month after posting a 7.56 ERA in 16 2/3 innings.

The 11-year veteran has a 3.90 career ERA in 556 career appearances in the big leagues.

Per CBS MLB insider Jon Heyman, Rauch has a June 18 opt-out clause with his minor-league agreement. The club would then have 48 hours to promote him to the majors or the veteran could become a free agent.
