Orioles utility man Ryan Flaherty dealing with arm issue

Orioles utility man Ryan Flaherty is dealing with an undisclosed arm issue, the team announced Monday before its Grapefruit League game against the New York Yankees at Ed Smith Stadium.

The injury isn’t considered serious. Orioles manager Buck Showalter is expected to address the injury after Monday’s game.

Flaherty is an important piece of the Orioles’ infield – the only player on the 40-man who can play all four infield positions. That importance is magnified  with shortstop J.J. Hardy sidelined with back spasms.

Flaherty played in two of the Orioles’ first three Grapefruit League games, but wasn’t in the starting lineup for Monday’s game. Chris Johnson started at third base.

He wasn’t seen taking grounders at third base before Monday’s game, but he did take throws from fielders at first base during batting practice.

The Orioles re-signed veteran utility man Paul Janish, who like Flaherty can play third base, shortstop and second base, this week on a minor league deal with a big league spring training.  

Utility infielder Paul Janish is back in camp again with the Orioles, signing a minor league deal with the club for the third straight year.

Janish was the latest addition to the Orioles’ big league spring training roster on Saturday, returning to the club after playing 14 games with the Orioles...
