Orioles Sign Dwyer

 

The Baltimore Orioles obviously feel that the way to overtake the New York Yankees is through the bench.

 

The Orioles signed Jim Dwyer to a three-year contract the second free agent the club has signed within the past two weeks.

 

 

Dwyer, a 30-year-old first baseman-outfielder whom the Phillies picked in the free agent draft, batted .285 with 38 RBI in 93 games with the Boston Red Sox last year.
