Buster Olney is reporting that that Athletics are showing interest in free agent infielder Nomar Garciaparra. Garciaparra hit .264 with 8 HR in 55 games for the Dodgers last season, but hit .283 in 2007 (121 games). Garciaparra would help balance their lineup, considering he hit .339 against lefties last season.
Oakland still has interest in Orlando Cabrera, but will only make a move if he is willing to accept a deal worth 3-3.5 million dollars.
