He agreed to a minor league contract with the Orioles and will have a chance to earn a job at their Triple-A farm team in Norfolk, Va.
Analysis: He had contacted Baltimore manager Buck Showalter at the winter meetings this month in Nashville, Tenn. Greenberg says "to get the opportunity with the Orioles means everything to me."

Analysis: Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen had previously stated he was considering starting Greenberg in the outfield and batting leadoff for his one at-bat, but has since decided he will insert him in Tuesday's game at some point. Greenberg has been in the national spotlight when the Marlins announced last week that they would sign the 31-year old to a one-day contract so he could receive one at-bat after getting hit in the head in his Major League debut seven years ago.

The Miami Marlins say they will sign the former Chicago Cubs prospect to a one-day contract effective Oct. 2, and play him that day against the New York Mets.
Analysis: Greenberg made his first - and only - big-league appearance on July 9, 2005 for the Cubs against the Marlins, getting hit in the head by a Valerio De Los Santos pitch his first time at the plate. The impact of the 92 mph fastball lingered and he was later diagnosed with vertigo. Greenberg will donate his one-day salary to the Marlins' foundation, which will donate to the Sports Legacy Institute, a group that studies the effects of brain trauma in athletes and others.
