Orioles Continue to Pursue Chase Headley and “Haven’t Backed Off”

The Athletics, Orioles, Pirates and Indians are the teams most aggressively pursuing Chase Headley, according to ESPN’s Jayson Stark.

Stark notes that while the Pirates and Indians are not very motivated, the Orioles and Athletics “haven’t backed off”. The Orioles and Athletics are more interested because both are looking for a player like Headley who can be controlled by the team beyond this season.
