Found February 16, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Baltimore Orioles might consider signing free agent Bobby Abreu, but they’re going to review the in-house options they already have in camp first, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. #orioles might consider @bobkellyabreu but they're going to see what they have in camp 1st — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) February 15, 2013 Abreu isn’t a clear fit for the Orioles at this point. While the team has been in the market for an impact bat throughout the offseason, the veteran certainly wouldn’t qualify. Abreu did play the outfield for most of the 2012 season, but he’s likely better suited for the role of designated hitter. The Orioles already have Wilson Betemit and Russ Canzler as DH options. Betemit has hit right-handed pitching well throughout his career, something that Abreu would also offer as a left-handed hitter. While Abreu’s not a clear fit, the Orioles could decide to take a flier on him if the price is right. General manager Dan Duquette has shown a proclivity for these sorts of investments, and he has preached the importance of increasing the team’s on base percentage. While Abreu’s power has declined precipitously over the years, he still has a good eye and has shown an ability to get on at an above average clip.
