Rosenthal is reporting that the O's are close to signing Huff.
I'm not sure if I get this signing. Huff is an awful OF which makes 1B/DH more sensible for him but the O's already have two LHs at those two spots. Thus the signing adds depth but if you want to add depth why not add a RH bat (like Wilson) and why spend 18 million dollars? If the O's want to use Huff mostly at LF, then the signing is more sensible but I'm not particularly thrilled with this either. While I like the idea of platooning Payton and Corey at CF, Huff is an awful fielder and I'm afraid his skills might decline. An OPS around .780 from Huff would not suprise me at all which is entirely too little production for his pay.
