FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal is reporting that recently released infielder Bill Hall is already drawing interest from multiple teams. The Orioles, dealing with the injury of Brian Roberts, could use Hall at second base until he returns and then convert him to a super utility role, a role he has been successful in.
Hall was hitting a disappointing .224 this season for the Astros, but would be coming at a bargain and pro-rated. The Nationals also have peripheral interest, but have Jerry Hairston who would fill the same role once Ryan Zimmerman returns.
Rosenthal also mentions the Yankees' interest, but I doubt they are very serious considering the fact that AL sources say they are already sizing up the trade market in hopes of making some small, positive moves.
