Orioles close on Izturis

Posted on: December 10, 2008 2:23 pm
 

LAS VEGAS -- The Baltimore Orioles are on the verge of landing their shortstop: They've all but finalized a one-year deal with Cesar Izturis, according to sources.

Izturis, 28, hit .263 with a .319 on-base percentage and 24 steals last season for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Orioles had inquired on several other shortstops, including discussing Khalil Greene in trade with San Diego before Greene was shipped to the Cardinals this winter. With Detroit having signed Adam Everett this week, the shortstop market was beginning to dwindle.

Rafael Furcal, who continues talking with Oakland, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Kansas City, remains unsigned, as does Orlando Cabrera.
