Add a high on-base percentage table-setter to the Orioles' wish list of major needs this month.
Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Wednesday that bolstering the club’s starting pitching remains a priority, whether it comes internally or through a trade, but he also is actively searching for a “set-up hitter” with a history of getting on-base.
“We have to address the on-base percentage at the top of our lineup,” Duquette said. “We had a really good on-base man inNolan [Reimold] out there and he did a good job, but we aren’t going to have him.”
Markakis coming back should help.
