Magglio Ordonez Rumors: Wednesday

The latest on Magglio Ordonez

  • Today's workout was only meant for the Tigers and was not an open audition, tweets MLB.com's Ian Browne.
  • The Orioles did not watch Ordonez work out today and president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail refuted the report that they're interested, according to MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli (Twitter link).
  • Interestingly, the Red Sox did not have a representative at Ordonez's workout today, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. The Tigers were there, GM Dave Dombrowski told MLB.com's Jason Beck.
  • It's doubtful that the Red Sox would give Ordonez a two-year deal, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe hears (Twitter link).
  • The Red Sox appear to be focusing on Ordonez in their search for an outfielder, reports CBS Sports' Danny Knobler.  This would not be good news for Carl Crawford.  The Tigers, Phillies, and Orioles are also said to be in the mix for Maggs.  Ordonez is coming off a broken ankle, but worked out for teams today.  Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports says Boras is seeking at least two years and $20MM.
