Veteran left-hander Arthur Rhodes worked out in front of Orioles officials last week at Camden Yards with the hope of scoring an invitation to big league camp. But it’s not going to happen.
Here’s beat writer Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com:
Someone else in the organization described Rhodes’ tryout as a “courtesy.” Rhodes approached the Orioles about it. He wanted to find out whether he had anything left in the tank. The Orioles aren’t going to sign him.
Rhodes did not pitch professionally in 2012 and posted an uninspiring 4.64 ERA in 33 innings between the Rangers and Cardinals in 2011. The 43-year-old may simply hang it up.
The Orioles also gave a tryout last week to Fernando Tatis but probably won’t sign him either.
