Orioles Sign Alex Cintron

The Orioles inked shortstop Alex Cintron today.  That he’s probably the team’s best option at short now is damning with faint praise.

Cintron, 29, hit .243/.281/.324 for the White Sox in 185 ABs last year.  He dealt with bone spurs in his elbow, a bruised thumb, and time spent on the bereavement list for his grandfather.  Cintron had been with the Cubs this spring, but they no longer had a need for him after they decided not to trade Ronny Cedeno.
