News: Janish signed a minor league contract with the Orioles on Friday that includes an invite to spring training, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Impact: Janish started last season in the Rockies organization but struggled and was released. He later signed a minor league deal with the Royals, and finished the season strong, batting .314/.375/.438 with two home runs and 17 RBI at Triple-A Omaha. With J.J. Hardy already solidified at shortstop, Janish's sights will likely be set on a bench spot out of spring training.
