Yahoo! Sports reports free agent Orlando Cabrera is leaning toward signing with the Reds, who would make him their starting shorstop. An agreement may be reached tonight, the site reports.
Cabrera is choosing between the Reds and the Rockies, who would likely use him as an infield reserve.
The Denver Post reports the Rockies might turn to free agent Melvin Mora if Cabrera goes to Cincinnati. Mora's agent tells the newspaper that Colorado is a finalist for Mora. The Rockies see him backing up at second base and third base and in the outfield.
