The Orioles and Nationals could potentially match up for a
trade that would send slugger Mike Morse from Washington to Baltimore in
exchange for a package built around a left-handed reliever, reports Dan Kolko
of MASN Sports.
The Orioles strike me as one team that could be a good match, given their need for a middle-of-the-order bat and Morse's ability to play left field, first base or DH. Baltimore's roster is stocked with left-handed relief types (Brian Matusz, Troy Patton and Rule 5 pick T.J. McFarland are currently on the 40-man), giving Rizzo and Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette some options in negotiations.
