Huff Close to Deal With O's

Aubrey Huff and the Baltimore Orioles are close to a deal, reports’s Ken Rosenthal. The deal is believed to be in the three year, 18 million dollar range.

Huff was traded from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to the Houston Astros last season so he is very familiar with the pitching in the AL East.

Huff is not a defensive upgrade as he struggles defensively, but his bat is very strong. He will most likely be playing left field and not the regular third base that he has played for years.

He is expected to bat third in the lineup between Melvin Mora and Miguel Tejada.
