Rumor from Rosenthal: O's might acquire Lopez

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/8290500/O's-have-interest-in-deal-for-infielder-Lopez?CMP=OTC-K9B140813162&ATT=49

The Orioles, desperately seeking a shortstop, have engaged in substantive conversations with the Nationals about a trade for infielder Felipe Lopez, according to major league sources.

 

The Nationals reportedly are close to signing shortstop Cristian Guzman to a two-year contract extension for an unknown dollar amount and are unlikely to retain Lopez as a free agent after this season.

In return for Lopez, the Nationals likely would receive a marginal minor-league prospect.

The Orioles have been looking for help at shortstop ever since trading Miguel Tejada to the Astros last off-season.

Lopez is hitting .247 with 25 runs and 20 RBI.

If a deal is completed, it likely would not be announced until after the completion of the Orioles-Nationals series this weekend in Washington, sources say.

--------------

Pretty much a worthless trade especially since Lopez is a 3 month rental.  But if the O's give up next to nothing to get him, I suppose it can't hurt either.
