Although Arthur Rhodes hasn't pitched in the Majors since 2011, the Baltimore Orioles may be inclined to give him a shot.  He has been auditioning for the club and lives in the Baltimore area.  Rhodes had been a successful reliever in his career.  Baltimore is also considering another player who hasn't played in a while.  Fernando Tatis last played in 2010. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun confirmed the team's interest in both players. LHP Arthur Rhodes, 43, threw for #Orioles today at OPaCY, hoping for a ST invite. He hasn't pitched in MLB since 2011, but lives in Balt. — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) February 1, 2013 While in the Dom. Rep. this week, #Orioles brass worked out OF/INF Fernando Tatis, 38, who played for Os in 2006. Last played w Mets in 2010 — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) February 1, 2013 Rhodes pitched in the Majors for 20 seasons and is 43 years old.  In his last Major League season with the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals, Rhodes posted a 4.64 ERA.  In his career, though, Rhodes has a slightly more respectable 4.08 ERA. Related: Orioles eyeing relievers. Tatis is possibly the more surprising possibility for the club.  He has not played since 2010 and is now 38 years old.  He has one of the more unique claims to fame.  He once hit two grand slams in the same inning while playing with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999.  In his career, Tatis has hit .265/.344/.442. If the Orioles sign either player it would likely be to a minor league deal and simply to give themselves a back-up plan in case of injuries.
