Baltimore Orioles re-sign Stevie Wilkerson to a minor league deal
The Baltimore Orioles have re-signed Stevie Wilkerson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Wilkerson completed physical therapy last week after fracturing his finger in Philadelphia during an exhibition game. It cost him the entire 2020 season.
Wilkerson is excited about getting back to the team following his injury. He’s also excited about the possibility of having a normal off season following the craziness of 2020. He and his wife are in the process of moving to Sarasota, FL, which of courser is where the Orioles train.
Just as a reminder, a minor league deal isn’t a guarantee that Wilkerson will make the big league roster. However I suspect he’ll find his way onto the 25-man roster that goes north next year coming out of spring training. I doubt they would have re-signed him if thy didn’t want him.
