Found June 11, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
It's been reported that the Baltimore Orioles are in the market for starting pitching help, and general manager Dan Duquette is known for his love of bargain hunting. For these reasons, the O's became a rumored potential landing spot for recently released right-hander Jon Garland. However, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports has been told that Baltimore isn't interested in the veteran hurler. For fans asking about Jon Garland, I'm told #Orioles have no interest. — Roch Kubatko (@masnRoch) June 10, 2013 While Baltimore's offense is currently at or near the top of the majors in several categories, the team's pitching has been mediocre-to-bad to start the season. Due to injury and ineffectiveness, the Birds have used 11 starting pitchers this season. Several -- including Jair Jurrjens, Steve Johnson, Josh Stinson and Zach Britton -- have only made a single start, while Jake Arrieta has been demoted since breaking camp in the team's starting rotation. Baltimore's most consistent starter, Wei-Yin Chen, is on the disabled list, and the team only has one current member of the rotation with an ERA south of 4.00, Chris Tillman. The other four starters -- Miguel Gonzalez, Freddy Garcia, Jason Hammel and rookie Kevin Gausman -- have been erratic thus far. Garland wasn't very good himself for the Colorado Rockies prior to his release, posting an ERA and WHIP of 5.82 and 1.588. The 33-year-old owns a career ERA and WHIP of 4.37 and 1.387.
