BALTIMORE—The Orioles signed veteran left-handed pitcher Tom Gorzelanny to a minor league contract. The 34-year-old Gorzelanny made his debut with Norfolk on Sunday, pitching a third of an inning, allowing a hit and walking a batter.

Gorzelanny was released by Cleveland on July 9. He’s pitched 12 seasons in the majors with the Pirates, Cubs, Brewers, Tigers, Indians, and was with the Nationals in 2011 and 2012.

In seven games with Cleveland, Gorzelanny was 1-0 with a 21.00 ERA, and in his major league career, he’s 50-53 with a 4.40 ERA. 

Gorzellany has relieved more than he’s started in the major leagues, and in the Orioles’ continuing search for a left-hander, can serve as insurance.
