The Orioles have agreed to terms with the following four international players:

OF KEVIN INFANTE, an 18-year-old out of Cuba

OF ANGEL GOMEZ, a 17-year-old out of Venezuela

RHP KELVIN LAROCHE, a 19-year-old out of the Dominican Republic

SS GILBERT MACHADO, a 17-year-old out of Venezuela

Director of Player Development BRIAN GRAHAM provided the following quote: “Infante is a right-handed-hitting corner outfielder who also possesses the skill set to play second base. He’s a plus runner with a good offensive approach, and we believe that he will develop to be a productive hitter. Gomez is a well-rounded, right-handed hitting outfielder who can run, throw, and play all three outfield positions. LaRoche is a durable, right-handed pitcher, whose consistent delivery allows him to throw strikes. Machado is a natural shortstop with plus defensive skills and athleticism. We look forward to having our player development staff work with all four players to further enhance their skills.”
