The Orioles continue to look for a DH-type addition to their lineup and plan to make multiple waiver claims in order to facilitate a deal, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). However, the club's interest in Twins first baseman Justin Morneau is lukewarm.
The O's were linked to Morneau for several weeks leading up to the July 31st non-waiver deadline but the veteran wound up staying put with his sizable salary serving as a roadblock to a possible deal. The Twins got Morneau through waivers last week, but it doesn't look like Baltimore will renew their interest in the 32-year-old, who is owed roughly $3.5MM between now and the end of the season.

I can see why the O's would be searching for a DH, but looking at Morneau is puzzling. Wilson Betemit is rehabbing and should be up very shortly; Betemit vs. RHP/Valencia vs. LHP! I would have picked up Reynolds anyway. He's due for a hot streak.
