Orioles released OF Randy Winn.

Winn was given that information Monday morning and will now try to latch on with another organization before the start of the regular season. If he fails to find a big league job, which is highly possible, the O's could invite him back and place him at Triple-A Norfolk.

Randy Winn went 2-for-3 and homered as the Orioles' leadoff man in an 8-2 defeat of the Pirates on Monday.

Winn is hoping the Orioles decide to carry five outfielders on their Opening Day roster. He was hitting .182 in 22 at-bats entering the day, so he could use a few more games to build a compelling case.

Orioles signed OF Randy Winn to a minor league contract.

The deal also comes with an invitation to spring training, where Winn will face an uphill battle if his goal is to land a spot on Baltimore's Opening Day roster. The 36-year-old batted just .239/.307/.356 with four home runs and six stolen bases for the Yankees and Cardinals last season. He also lacks range defensively and often plays curiously deep to make up for it.

Randy Winn would like to continue to play in 2011 if he can "find a team that would like me to play for them."

It won't be easy. Winn hit just .239/.307/.356 with four homers and six steals for the Yankees and Cardinals last season. The 36-year-old will have to accept a minor league deal somewhere and hope to earn a bench spot. His days as a solid fantasy option are certainly over.

Randy Winn went 4-for-6 in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

They were all singles, but Winn drove in three runs and added a stolen base. The veteran has gotten a little bit more playing time with Colby Rasmus out, but Rasmus is due back soon. Winn is batting .250 in 104 at-bats with the Cardinals.

Cardinals signed OF Randy Winn.

Winn was recently designated for assignment by the Yankees, but the Cardinals must feel that he has enough left in the tank to contribute. The 36-year-old outfielder hit .213/.300/.295 in 71 PAs with the Yankees this season, but hit .290/.345/.432 over five seasons with the Giants, so perhaps he's just more suited to the National League.

Yankees designated outfielder Randy Winn for assignment.

After getting all of 13 at-bats in April, Winn was OK while helping to fill in for Curtis Granderson this month, hitting .250/.351/.354. Still, the Yankees opted to keep Kevin Russo over him. They'll start looking for a more imposing bench bat at some point.

Randy Winn slugged a three-run home run in a win over the Orioles on Monday night.

Winn was off to a dreadful 1-for-13 (.077) start to begin his Yankees' career, but got the start in left field with Brett Gardner in center. The Yankees will need him to produce with Curtis Granderson on the disabled list.

Randy Winn had three of the Yankees' five hits in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

He doubled for the team's only extra-base hit. Winn had been 4-for-24 with no extra-base hits this spring, so he completely failed to capitalize on Brett Gardner's somewhat slugging start. He'll be lucky just to be penciled in against left-handers at the beginning of the season.

After batting just .158 against left-handers in 2009, outfielder Randy Winn is confident that he will perform better this season.

"I was horrible," Winn said of last season. "The numbers showed it. I was terrible and there’s no two ways about it. It was a bad year. I don’t think it had anything to do with my age or loss of bat speed or anything like that. I was personally terrible. My career numbers have been much better than that and I’ve done a lot of work this off-season and hopefully I’m back to where I’ve been the majority of my career." Winn has actually fared quite well against lefties during his career -- posting a 758 OPS compared to a 764 OPS against righties -- so chances are this was an anomaly. He's expected to be "anything from a fourth outfielder to a starting outfielder," according to manager Joe Girardi.

Yankees signed OF Randy Winn to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

The two sides agreed to terms in late January, but the signing wasn't made official until Monday afternoon. Winn, 35, batted .262/.318/.353 last season with two home runs and 51 RBI in 597 plate appearances for the Giants. He was awful against left-handed pitching last year and is likely to serve in a left field platoon this season with Brett Gardner.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have signed outfielder Randy Winn to a one-year contract at around $2 million.

Your move, Boras. This should effectively close the book on the possibility of Johnny Damon returning to the Bronx, though time will tell if it was the right decision. Winn, 35, batted just .262/.318/.353 with two home runs and 51 RBI with the Giants last season and completely collapsed against left-handed pitching, batting just .154 in 120 at-bats. Hey, at least he's a tremendous defensive upgrade.

Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that free agent outfielder Randy Winn has not heard about the Nationals having any interest in him.

"Like I said, I've never even received a call from them," Winn told Ladson on Friday. "I don't believe my agent has either. Whether they do or don't has not been expressed to me." Winn, 35, would be an extra outfielder if he joins the Nationals, but he still considers himself an everyday player. After batting 262/.318/.353 with two home runs and 51 RBI in 538 at-bats this past season, the odds are against him.

ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Padres are also in the mix for free agent outfielder Randy Winn.

Winn isn't likely to land a starting gig this winter but he'll go where he can get the most at-bats, according to Crasnick. The Nationals and D'Backs are also interested in adding him and Arizona may boast the most available playing time. Winn, 35, hit .262 last year with two homers and 51 RBI in 538 at-bats.
