According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Orioles will announce the signing of Ryan Webb on Monday.

Nightengale also adds that despite the addition of Webb, the O's are still intent on adding a closer. They have recently been linked to John Axford and Chris Perez, and it wouldn't be surprising to see them ink a new closer during the winter meetings. If they are unable to bring in an experienced option, Webb could be in the mix for save opportunities.

Jonah Keri of reports that the Orioles have signed Ryan Webb to a two-year, $4.5 million deal.

Webb still needs to pass a physical in order for the deal to be completed. The Marlins non-tendered Webb even though he was projected by to earn just $1.5 million in arbitration, and now he's going to get $3 million more than that on a two-year pact. It's possible Webb could be in the mix for closing duties in Baltimore if the O's don't bring in someone with ninth inning experience.

Marlins non-tendered RHP Ryan Webb.

One of the more interesting names to not be tendered a contract before Monday's deadline. Webb doesn't pile up the strikeouts that you'd expect from someone with his stuff, but he gets a ton of ground balls and owns a career 3.29 ERA over parts of five seasons. He should be scooped up in no time.

Ryan Webb has been a steady veteran influence on Miami's bullpen, posting a 2.08 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 26 innings in 2013.

The bad news, for owners in holds leagues, is that Webb has only one. Such is life for Miami relievers, who inherit leads about as often as deceased investigative reporters.

Marlins avoided arbitration with RHP Ryan Webb by agreeing to a one-year, $975,000 contract.

Marlins recalled RHP Ryan Webb from Triple-A New Orleans.

According to beat reporter Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Ryan Webb or Edward Mujica will handle a save situation Thursday afternoon against the Giants.

Heath Bell is sporting a brutal 11.74 ERA in 7 2/3 innings this season and has also appeared in each of the Marlins' past three games. If the Marlins decide to remove the high-priced closer completely from his current role, ninth-inning responsibilities would likely be split between Webb, Mujica and Steve Cishek.
