As first reported by MASN’s Roch Kubatko, the Orioles agreed on Wednesday to a minor league contract with free agent utilityman Conor Jackson.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training, where Jackson will be given a chance to compete for a spot on Baltimore’s Opening Day 25-man roster.

Jackson batted .277/.363/.434 with nine home runs and 41 RBI in 88 games this past season for Triple-A Charlotte — an affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.

The 30-year-old former first-round pick is a .271/.351/.407 career hitter in the major leagues.
