The Orioles appear to have added yet another outfielder to their ever-growing stock. Tyler Colvin, a 28-year-old left-handed hitter has agreed to a one-year contract, pending a physical.

Colvin has played the last two seasons for the Colorado Rockies. Last season, Colvin batted .160 in 27 games, but in 2012, he hit .290 with 18 home runs and 72 RBIs. In 2010, Colvin hit .254 with 20 home runs and 56 RBIs.

Colvin is the fifth left-handed hitting outfielder the Orioles have added since early December. They traded for David Lough from Kansas City, who figures to be the starting left fielder, signed minor league free agents Quintin Barry and Xavier Paul and drafted Julio Borbon.

With Colvin’s addition, they will have 12 outfielders in camp. The story was first reported by the Baltimore Sun.
