The Orioles could announce as early as tomorrow that they will acquire left-handed starter Rich Hill from the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later, according to industry sources. One source cautioned that the deal is not yet complete, but the Orioles are hopeful that it will be by early this week.
I guess MacPhail was having second thoughts on letting Daniel Cabrera go, so he went and found the best Cabrera 2.0 he could.
(That said, there really seems to be no harm in this deal, and I think it's fine.)
UPDATE (zk): Per dkdc below, this is a done deal (ESPN). Brian Burres was DFA'd to make room for Hill.
