Orioles Acquire Juan Castro

According to MLB.com’s Spencer Fordin, the Orioles acquired shortstop Juan Castro from the Rockies today for minor leaguer Mike McCoy.  Castro played 18 games for Colorado’s Triple A club.

Fordin spoke to Andy MacPhail, and the implication is that the Orioles’ midseason hunt for a shortstop may have come to an end with Castro.  Castro is understandably happy, as there aren’t too many places where he’d have a shot at a starting gig.  I’m sure MacPhail will continue hunting for a long-term option at short, even if it carries into the offseason.
