Orioles close on Chong
The Orioles are working out the final details of a contract with Korean pitcher Chong Tae-Hyon and could have the deal wrapped up sometime on Wednesday, but the announcement does not appear imminent. Apparently, the Ravens aren't the only ones trying to get things done on a condensed schedule this week.
Club officials have indicated that there are still a few things to work out and Chong has yet to complete his physical with the holiday looming. The deal apparently is going to get done. Just not very quickly.
