Report: Orioles Interested in Johnny Damon


January 13, 2012

If a recent report is accurate, Johnny Damon could eventually continue to work his way through the American League East.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Orioles are interested in the two-time All-Star.

Damon, of course, played for the Red Sox from 2002-2005, before moving on to the Yankees from 2006-2008. After a quick stop in Detroit in 2010, Damon played for the Rays this past season. Prior to his tenure in Boston, Damon suited up for the Kansas City Royals from 1995-2000 and the Oakland Athletics in 2001.

Heyman reports that the Orioles are amongst seven American League teams interested in Damon's services, while no National League teams have expressed interest.

Damon, who's played primarily as an outfielder in his career, made the transition to full-time DH last season, playing 135 games in such role.

Damon, 38, is a career .286 hitter with 231 home runs and 1,120 RBIs. Last season, he batted .261 while blasting 16 home runs and driving in 73 runs in 150 games for the Rays.
