BALTIMORE -- The Orioles have signed veteran infielder Alex Gonzalez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gonzalez, who turns 37 on Feb. 15, hit .177 in 41 games for Milwaukee last season. He made his major league debut with Florida in 1998 and has played 15 seasons, the last two with the Brewers.

Gonzalez has seen action most as a shortstop, but last year also played both infield corner positions.

Although known primarily for his glove, Gonzalez has a career batting average of .246 with 157 homers and 688 RBIs over 1,600 games.
