The Baltimore Orioles signed corner infielder Juan Francisco to a minor league deal on Wednesday, Milbet Rodriguez reported.

Francisco skipped the 2016 season and last played professionally in Japan’s Central League.

It might take a prayer for Francisco to make the major league roster. He’s a career .236/.297/.439 hitter with 48 home runs and 152 RBI.
