SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) The Baltimore Orioles and infielder Danny Valencia have agreed on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Valencia will make $1.2 million if he makes the Orioles and can add $3 million in performance bonuses.

Valencia, who is 33, has played eight major league seasons with Minnesota, Boston, Baltimore, Kansas City, Toronto, Oakland and Seattle.

Last season, Valencia hit .256 in 130 games with the Mariners with 15 home runs and 66 RBIs.

In 2013, he hit .304 with eight home runs and 23 RBIs in 52 games with the Orioles.

With Valencia's addition, the Orioles have 66 players in camp.
