The Virginia native, 32, ultimately might be the best free-agent fit for the Orioles. He isn't flashy, but he hit 20 homers while getting on base at a .346 clip in his first All-Star season in 2011. He played 77 games in the outfield, 46 at first base and 17 at second base. He has also played third in his career. He'll land a lucrative deal, but it won't be earth-shattering. And the Orioles would love to have a guy whom they can start every day but can move all around the diamond and be second base insurance if Brian Roberts can't play.
