SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Pedro Alvarez will try shifting to the outfield in his return to the Baltimore Orioles.

A corner infielder with Pittsburgh and a designated hitter with Baltimore last year, Alvarez finalized a minor league contract Monday and would get a $2 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man roster.

Alvarez says he is "looking forward to the opportunity to get to learn the position as best as possible. Obviously, whenever you try playing a new position you've got to put in a lot of work. And the one thing you can't replicate is game reps, so just looking forward to getting the opportunity to go out there and just play."
