This from MLB trade rumors:
The Orioles would give up their first-round draft pick -- No. 17 overall -- if the right free-agent opportunity presented itself, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweets. That means that, if they're willing to open their wallets, they could be contenders for players like Carlos Beltran and Nelson Cruz, both of whom rejected qualifying offers.
I believe I would really be unhappy if the signed Cruz. He's a butcher in the field (cost the Rangers a World Series title) and he's going to be on a downward spiral. Plus we lose that #17 draft pick. I thought the Orioles were trying to build the farm system anyway.
