According to Roch Kubatko of MASN, the Orioles may be closing in on a trade to acquire a hitter.
“I’ve heard rumblings that executive vice president Dan Duquette is working on a trade and may be at the point where he’s checking medical records.”
Kubatko’s article focused mostly on free agent Kendrys Morales, who the O’s have been linked to, but they are reluctant to sacrifice a draft pick to sign him.
It’s true that the Orioles balked at a proposed Rodriguez for Davis swap last week, but the latest rumors say that the Mets were still talking to them.
Maybe I’m just grasping at straws, or maybe we could soon be hearing that Sandy Alderson has flipped Ike Davis for a young arm or perhaps another piece for the 25 man roster.
Sandy has frequently operated in stealth mode when it comes to trading, which would explain the lack of buzz from Mets beat writers on this.
Anyway, I thought this was worth sharing. You could read the full article here, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment thread.
