Orioles agree to deal with Welington Castillo
The Baltimore Orioles have signed free agent catcher Welington Castillo, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
This has been the expected outcome for both sides since Castillo was non-tendered by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The deal signals the end of Matt Wieters' time in Baltimore, but should provide a nice outlook for Castillo's fantasy prospects.
Castillo slashed .264/.322/.423 with 14 home runs and a career-high 68 RBI's over 457 plate appearances with the Diamondbacks last season.
