O’s Interested In John McDonald

According to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun (via Twitter), the Orioles are interested in free agent infielder John McDonald.

McDonald, 35, hit .258/.271/.384 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 152 plate appearances this season for the Blue Jays.  The Orioles are expected to let Melvin Mora walk this offseason in lieu of exercising his $8MM option for 2010 and could use some inexpensive infield depth.  McDonald was well above average defensively this season with a 10.5 UZR/150 (per FanGraphs).  He made $1.9MM in 2009.
