The Baltimore Orioles are planning to contend in 2013 too, so they will try to add players to their roster that can help them win now. For that reason, the team is interested in outfielder Jonny Gomes according to Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun.
Gomes could DH when a left handed pitcher is on the mound. As Encina points out, Gomes hit .299/.413/.561 with 11 HR's, 26 RBI's and a .418 wOBA. He also believes that Gomes could play left field once in a while or make a transition to third base.
The 31-year old Gomes is a career .244/.334/.455 hitter with 136 HR's, 411 RBI's and a .342 wOBA in 3060 plate appearances. Against lefties, he's a career .284/.382/.512 hitter with 50 HR's, 154 RBI's and a .385 wOBA in 1100 plate appearances.
