The Orioles have re-signed left fielder Nate McLouth, maintain dialogue with lefty starter Joe Saunders and, according to an industry source, are among the clubs showing legitimate interest in signing right-handed reliever Matt Lindstrom, whom the Orioles traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in August for Saunders.

Lindstrom, 32, was 1-0 with a 2.72 ERA in 32 games with the Orioles, striking out 30 batters and walking 12 while allowing 35 hits in 36 1/3 innings. He was a key member of the Orioles' outstanding bullpen despite missing six weeks due to a right middle finger injury.

He looked pretty damn good last year. I would love to have him back. I like him a lot more than I like Ayala.

when he is healthy he has a real major league fastball. I would love to see him come back. Stock pile the arms.

The only way I could them justified in resigning him is if they intend on trading from their existing surplus of bullpen arms.

Yes no question he would be a nice pickup and gives us added security in event of injuries and/or non-production 8-)
