NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With their re-signing of outfielder
today, the Orioles are no longer interested in free-agent
Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette told reporters Wednesday night that with the addition of McLouth, the team is closing the door on adding any more outfielders.
Asked whether the team would still be interested in Swisher because he can also play first base – another area of need for the Orioles – Duquette made it clear the team was moving away from Swisher.
