Jon Heyman of CBS sports recently reported via twitter that the Orioles “have not ruled out” Shin-Soo Choo or Nelson Cruz as options to fill the vacancy in LF. Heyman also notes that the Orioles need to add a DH and a Closer and wouldn’t mind adding a Starting Pitcher.
Jim Duquette of the MLB Network sent out multiple tweets regarding the Orioles offseason plan. He reported that the Orioles are looking for a Left Handed Hitter either in LF or at DH and options at those positions are more likely available via trade than through free agency. He also stated, as multiple reports have today, that the Orioles are interested in bringing in recently non-tendered veteran closer John Axford.
