Although sources have indicated the Orioles’ strong likelihood of signing Paul Byrd, it seems that the pitcher is visiting Mark Shapiro in Cleveland today.
I was directed by an emailer to this thread on Scout.com a few minutes ago. As a commenter mentions, putting B.J. Ryan‘s name in lights didn’t exactly seal the deal. Regardless, the Indians’ interest is for real. Byrd has looked solid pitching against current White Sox players, for what that’s worth.
