BALTIMORE (AP) The AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles are seeking to secure a few good arms before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.
"We've had conversations with a number of teams and we've been looking for some pitching depth," Dan Duquette, the Orioles vice president of baseball operations, said Tuesday. "That's primarily what we're focused on."
Baltimore currently has five dependable starters - Chris Tillman, Miguel Gonzalez, Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman. Not only that, but Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle sprain) is close to leaving the disabled list.
