Adam Jones Wins Gold Glove

Adam Jones won the American League gold glove for outfielders. In other news, the Orioles signed C Michel Hernandez to a minor league contract.

Congratulations to Adam Jones for being the first Oriole to win a gold glove since Mike Mussina in 1999. Hes also only the second Oriole outfielder to ever win a gold glove, Paul Blair won eight of them. Hopefully this is the first of many for the young centerfielder.

Hernandez was playing in the Tampa Bay Rays organization over the last few years. Hes a no hit, good glove catcher. Just another candidate for the vacant backup catcher spot for 2010. He hit .196/.273/.196 over 46 at bats for AAA Durham in 2009.
