The Baltimore Orioles continue to hold negotiations with free agent Joe Saunders, as the club would like to re-sign the left-hander, according to Buster Olney of ESPN. The Orioles have continued talks with Joe Saunders, a pitcher they would like to re-sign. He's also high interest from three other clubs. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 20, 2012 Saunders is also receiving “high interest” from three other clubs at this time, adds Olney. The Orioles acquired Saunders last summer from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for reliever Matt Lindstrom. The left-hander went on to maintain an ERA and WHIP of 3.63 and 1.276 over seven starts for Baltimore and playing a pivotal role in the postseason. Baltimore entered the offseason with starting pitching on its to-do list, but as of yet it hasn’t added an arm. General manager Dan Duquette has shown a patient approach and now that the high-profile names are off the market he may come in and sign a pitcher such as Saunders to supplement the team’s rotation. The O’s could use a veteran presence in their rotation and someone who can be counted on to provide 150-plus innings in 2013. At this point their potential rotation will consist of some combination of Jason Hammel, Wei-Yin Chen, Chris Tillman, Miguel Gonzalez, Zach Britton, Steve Johnson and Brian Matusz.

Every Pitch Is Bad For You
