Garcia agrees to minor league deal with Orioles

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -  

Pitcher Freddy Garcia agreed to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles, five days after he was released by the San Diego Padres.
 
The 36-year-old right-hander was 1-4 with an 8.71 ERA in six spring training starts for the Padres, allowing 25 runs and 26 hits in 20 2-3 innings. He was 7-6 with a 5.20 ERA in 17 starts and 13 relief appearances for the New York Yankees last year. 
 
An All-Star in 2001 and 2002, Garcia is 152-101 with a 4.15 ERA in 14 major league seasons. 
 
Baltimore said Friday that outfielder Chris Dickerson had been reassigned to its minor league camp.
