With their 40-man roster full, the Orioles signed eight players to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.
One of them, left-handed pitcher Cesar Cabral, pitched for the Orioles last year, and had two scoreless outings.
Another, infielder Steve Tolleson, played 29 games for the Orioles in 2012, hitting .183. Tolleson played for Toronto in 2014 and 2015.
Two right-handed pitchers, Pedro Beato and Todd Redmond, are back with the Orioles. Beato rejoined the Orioles organization last season, and was 5-5 with a 2.65 ERA in 65 games for Norfolk.
Beato has a 4-2 record with a 4.34 ERA in four major league seasons with the Mets, Red Sox and Braves. He was taken from the Orioles by New York in the 2010 Rule 5 draft.

Redmond was with the Orioles in 2013’s spring training. He has a 5-8 record with a 5.25 ERA in parts of four major league seasons with Cincinnati and Toronto. The Blue Jays claimed him on waivers from the Orioles in March 2013.
Also signed was South Korean first baseman Ji-Man Choi, who’s batted .302 in five minor league seasons in the Seattle organization.
Three minor leaguers were re-signed: left-handed pitcher Ashur Tolliver, infielder Ozzie Martinez and catcher Audry Perez.
Tolliver, the Orioles’ fifth round selection in the 2009 draft, is 8-8 with a 3.19 ERA in six seasons with Aberdeen, Delmarva, Frederick and Bowie.
Martinez, who played 34 games with the Marlins in 2010 and 2011, played excellent defense with Bowie last season, and Perez, who appeared in three games for St. Louis in 2013 and 2014, hit .243 in 78 games for Norfolk in 2015.
