Earlier this afternoon, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that an unknown team had claimed outfielder Josh Willingham on waivers. Many speculated on who the team that claimed him was, but now we have a definitive answer as to who claimed Willingham. The Baltimore Orioles are the team who claimed Willingham off waivers, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. The two teams are trying to work out a deal now. The Orioles have been looking for a right-handed bat with some power and Willingham fits the bill. Willingham isn't the only Twins player the Orioles have showed interest in, according to LaVelle Neal of the Star-Tribune: Word is that O's talked with Twins again about Morneau but want righthanded pop. — LaVelle E. Neal III (@LaVelleNeal) August 29, 2013 The Orioles acquiring Morneau is unlikely, but a deal for Willingham seems like a possibility. Willingham is under contract for the rest of this year and all of next year, so he isn't just a potential rental for the Orioles. In order for the Twins to get a good return for Willingham, they would have to eat some of his remaining salary. Next year, Willingham is scheduled to make $7 million. On the year, Willingham is hitting .215 with 12 home runs and 45 RBI's. The Orioles have been one of the most aggressive teams claiming players on waivers and they may have found a bat that they have been coveting.
