Nikkan Sports is reporting that Baltimore Orioles have signed Yoshihiro Doi (35) to a minor league contract.

Doi spent time playing for the Seibu Lions (1998-2004, 2009-2010) and Yokohama Bay Stars (2004-2008) before heading to the US in 2011, where he signed a deal with the Lancaster Barnstormers.  However, due to work visa issues, Doi did not have a chance to pitch for Lancaster and returned to Japan.
