The Orix Buffaloes have come to terms on 2013 contracts with
right-hander Brandon Dickson and outfielder Vinny Rottino, a source
within Orix revealed Thursday. An official announcement is expected
this month.

The 28-year-old Dickson has pitched in eight big league games
for the St. Louis Cardinals. In three Triple-A seasons, he has posted
a 24-28 record with a 3.59 ERA.

Rottino, 32, has had cups of coffee with four big league clubs,
batting .165 in 97 at-bats over five years. In seven Triple-A
seasons, he has batted .294 with little power or speed. Now an
outfielder, he has played every position on the field as a pro.
