Utility man Ryan Flaherty, who has been a key piece on Orioles clubs the past six years, has agreed to on a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to industry sources. The Orioles had interest in bringing Flaherty, 31, back and had been in discussions with him in recent days, but they couldn’t put a comparable offer together before Flaherty decided to sign with the Phillies, according to a source. Obscured by the team’s need for three starting pitchers to fill out its starting rotation, the Orioles are also still searching for a utility infielder as spring training opens next week in Sarasota, Fla.
