CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles have agreed to a deal with Cuban left-hander Ariel Miranda, pending a physical. No word yet on the terms involved.
Miranda threw for teams last month at a showcase last month at the University of Miami alongside Andy Ibanez, Ariel Miranda, and Gelkis Jimenez, per Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. Ibanez, an infielder, has been the most highly-regarded name in that group.
Miranda pitched in Cuba’s Serie Nacional from 2007-2013 and posted a 3.78 ERA over 64 starts and 16 relief appearances. The 25-year-old averaged 6.4 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 during his time there.
