Orioles interested, no deal done w. LaRoche
According to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, the Orioles are closing in on a deal with Adam LaRoche. Price tweeted that around 3 p.m. ET and, although the O’s have interest in LaRoche, a source close to the negotiations said the two sides aren’t as close as Price suggests.
When asked if a LaRoche deal was in the works, the source said “not that I’m aware of.” To be clear, the Orioles are very interested in LaRoche, as well as Derrek Lee.
I blogged earlier today that the organization is very confident it can sign a true first baseman this winter. But there is nothing imminent on that front right now.
