The Orioles cancelled a deal with Colvin back on January 26 because of back issues that showed up after his physical. But the Orioles also cancelled a deal with Grant Balfour who has since signed with the Rays.
If you’re not familiar, Colvin is a 28-year old outfielder that bats left-handed. He spent 2009-2011 with the Cubs and 2012-2013 with the Rockies. In his last two years with the Rockies he holds a .271 batting average.
