Royalsorioles_9965
The Orioles and approximately ten other teams have expressed some level of interest in signing Luke Scott, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter). The 33-year-old became a free agent Monday night when the Orioles declined to tender him a contract.  Scott, who battled a shoulder injury in 2011 and underwent surgery this summer, projected to earn $6MM through arbitration, so GM Dan Duquette let him go. But from 2008-10, Scott averaged 25 home runs and a .266/.348/.497 line, so there's strong interest in the PSI Sports Management client.

A Wada I Can Like

The Orioles signed Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada, described as a soft-tossing lefty. With that last name, we probably don’t need to worry about him doping! He certainly seems to strike out a lot of batters for a soft tosser. If the upside is Jamie Moyer, I can see the Orioles being very happy with this signing.
