The Orioles re-signed Chris Gomez for the bench.
Cost: 1 year/~$1 million
Gomez had a hot streak in September to make his stats look good, but it was in only 132 at bats. He has hit lefties well and he can play all around the infield. I would be ok with it, except we already have Freddie Bynum and Brandon Fahey. I guess this move means Fahey gets sent down to AAA and Bynum will eventually placed on waivers. Not a bad move, but not really a good one either. Chris Gomez won’t really have much of an impact on the Orioles season next year.
