Orioles pitcher Tommy Hunter went undercover at the Orioles’ team store in York, PA, trying to surreptitiously push his own jersey sales. A couple of shoppers thought they were in the presence of a major leaguer, but Hunter played it off and told them his name was Ray.
Hunter has put together a pair of solid seasons in Baltimore since becoming a full-time reliever, compiling a 2.88 ERA with a 113/26 K/BB ratio in 147 innings. Any increase in jersey sales is certainly well-deserved.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.
The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.
The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.
Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
