Found January 04, 2012 on MLB Trade Rumors:
Orioles executive VP of baseball operations Dan Duquette recently told Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com that he's not sure if this year's everyday second baseman is currently on the team's roster. The Orioles are also looking for starters and outfielders while considering trades. Here's the latest...  Talks between the Braves and Orioles about Adam Jones are “nowhere,” according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter links). The Braves won’t trade a top young starter for Jones, so there’s no momentum for a deal. However, talks remain fluid and Martin Prado and Jair Jurrjens could be involved. The Braves are understandably reluctant to part with pitchers such as Brandon Beachy, Mike Minor, Julio Teheran, Arodys Vizcaino and Randall Delgado. Shortstop J.J. Hardy said yesterday on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Report that he thinks former teammate Prince Fielder would "help [the Orioles] out a lot," according to Kubatko.  Free agent lefty Joe Saunders ...

Pirates sign Jo-Jo Reyes to minor league deal

Jen Langosch is reporting tonight that the Pirates have signed lefty Jo-Jo Reyes to a minor league deal and from Reyes' own tweet, it's probably safe to assume that he'll be a non-roster invite to spring training. Reyes spent 2011 with the Blue Jays and Orioles after being traded from the Braves to the Royals in 2010. He was drafted by the Braves in the second round...

The BP First Take: Tuesday, January 3 by Daniel Rathman

The Orioles have had little trouble stockpiling top pitching prospects in recent years. Turning them into big leaguers, however, has been another matter entirely. Brandon Erbe and Pedro Beato in 2007. Chorye Spoone and Radhames Liz in 2008. Chris Tillman, Brian Matusz, Jake Arrieta, and Erbe in 2009. Matusz, Arrieta, and Zach Britton in 2010. That’s eight four- or five-star...

Pirates ink Reyes to Minor League deal

Lefty Jo-Jo Reyes has agreed to a Minor League deal with the Pirates, a source confirmed to MLB.com. Terms of the deal were not immediately known, though Reyes is expected to participate in the Pirates' big league camp this spring.

Pirates sign Jo-Jo Reyes and Logan Kensing

The Pirates announced 2 minor league deals over the past 2 days. Yesterday, the Bucs signed lefty starter Jo-Jo Reyes, who started 25 games between Baltimore and Toronto last year. Over 140 2/3 innings, he went 7-11 with a 5.57 ERA. Reyes should serve as AAA depth and will probably only sniff the Major League roster if there are multiple injuries. Today, the club announced the signing...

Orioles Rumors: Adam Jones, Tommy Hanson, Fielder

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun has produced a good amount of Orioles information today; let's discuss the highlights. The Orioles are fairly confident they will add another outfielder, though that wouldn't necessarily portend an Adam Jones trade.  The Orioles were not overly intrigued by the Braves' offer of Jair Jurrjens, Martin Prado, and a minor league...

Pirates sign Jo-Jo Reyes to Minor League deal

The Pirates have signed lefty Jo-Jo Reyes to a minor league deal, which will likely include an invitation to spring training. Reyes is 27 and has been terrible in the big leagues. His career ERA is 6.05 and he just tied the major league record for most consecutive starts without a win (28 before snapping it with a complete game in May). Wins are a terrible indicator of a pitcher’s...

Texas trades for Snyder, re-signs Nelson

The Rangers acquired infielder Brandon Snyder from the Orioles for cash considerations on Tuesday. Texas also re-signed left-handed-hitting first baseman Brad Nelson to a Minor League contract. He will be assigned to Minor League camp.

The Baltimore Inferiority Complex

If you have grown up in Baltimore you know what I am talking about - if you don't know what I am speaking of allow me to explain. Virtually everyone that has grown up in the greater Baltimore area suffers from a unique condition called the "Baltimore Inferiority Complex" (BIC). The BIC results in your average Baltimorean taking a salty attitude towards virtually every...

Brandon Snyder talks about being traded to Rangers

When the Orioles acquired Mark Reynolds and Derrek Lee last offseason and then traded for Chris Davis in July, first baseman Brandon Snyder knew his opportunities in Baltimore were shrinking. So when the former first rounder – Snyder received a $1.7 million bonus as the 13 th overall pick in 2005 – was traded on Tuesday to the Texas Rangers for cash considerations, it wasn’t a shock.

Orioles Acquire Jai Miller

The Orioles acquired outfielder Jai Miller from the Athletics for cash considerations, according to a press release.  Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said in a statement, "Jai Miller has the power, speed, base stealing skills and good athletic ability to be an asset in our outfield as he competes for a spot on our ballclub this spring...

Orioles acquire OF Miller from A's (AP)

The Baltimore Orioles have obtained outfielder Jai Miller from the Oakland Athletics, who parted with the part-time player for cash considerations. Miller was designated for assignment by Oakland on Dec. 23 after the A's received four players for pitcher Gio Gonzalez. The 26-year-old Miller went 3 for 12 with a homer and two RBIs for Oakland last season after being called up in September.
