Orioles Interested In Eckstein

According to the Baltimore Sun, citing "industry sources," the Orioles are talking to the Blue Jays about shortstop David Eckstein.  The Jays have deemed Eckstein expendable, even though they're reportedly hunting for a long-term shortstop.  Jeff Zrebiec and Roch Kubatko believe it wouldn't take much to acquire him. 

Eckstein, 33, is hitting .273/.360/.348 this year.  The Orioles' shortstops have hit .228/.264/.287 this year collectively.

The O's have also scouted Juan Uribe and Felipe Lopez.  Despite previous reports of "substantive conversations" for Lopez, the Sun says the team's interest has waned.
