The Baltimore Orioles are pursuing Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Jason Kubel, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Sources: #Orioles pursuing trade for #Diamondbacks' Kubel. Talks not at advanced stage. Orioles also like #Tigers' Porcello. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) January 23, 2013 Rosenthal adds that discussions between the Orioles and Diamondbacks have yet to reach an advanced stage. He also notes that the Orioles are interested in Detroit Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello, though it would be unlikely for the team to acquire both players. The Diamondbacks are reportedly weighing an offer for outfielder Justin Upton from the Atlanta Braves. They are hoping to trade one of Upton or Kubel in the next few days, according to reports, though it remains to be determined which player will be moved. Baltimore discussed Kubel with the Diamondbacks earlier this offseason, and at the time Arizona was interested in Baltimore’s young pitching. This list of potential targets includes Chris Tillman, Brian Matusz, Zach Britton, Jake Arrieta and Steve Johnson. The Orioles are extremely unlikely to trade top prospect Dylan Bundy for anyone, much less Kubel. Rosenthal later expanded his list of Orioles targets to include free agent Joe Saunders and Chicago Cubs slugger Alfonso Soriano. Baltimore has been tied to Saunders for much of the offseason, while Rosenthal lists Soriano as the team’s least likely acquisition.
