The Baltimore Orioles showed “strong interest” in Arizona
Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton a few weeks back, but talks have since
sputtered as the O’s are returning their focus to starting pitchers, according
to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Add #Orioles to teams that have pursued JUpton. Strong interest a few weeks back, but talks sputtered. Team seemingly more focused on SPs.
