It’s difficult to say for certain what the Orioles are trying to accomplish in the trade market but one thing seems clear: Even after adding right-handed starter Scott Feldman and reliever Francisco Rodriguez they want to do something big. The Orioles’ targets according to major-league sources include Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau and Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Michael Young. Will the Orioles get all of those players? Of course not. There is a decent chance they might not get any of them. Owner Peter Angelos has been a stickler in the past on medical issues and Peavy 32 has a long history of injuries including major shoulder surgery in 2010. Morneau 32 is a left-handed hitter with approximately $5 million left on his contract; the Orioles would prefer a right-handed bat at a lesser cost. Young 36 is a right-handed hitter but has a full no-trade clause and might prefer to return to the Rangers or join another club. In any case the Orioles’ aggression is notable. Sources say the team is even willing to move one of its top prospects right-hander Dylan Bundy for the right return. Bundy 20 underwent Tommy John surgery last month but the success rate of pitchers recovering from the operation is quite good. The Chicago Cubs acquired right-hander Arodys Vizcaino from the Atlanta Braves last season just four months after he had the surgery. Vizcaino 22 was the centerpiece of the package that the Cubs acquired for left-hander Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson.
