After having Arthur Rhodes and Fernando Tatis work out for them, it seemed the Baltimore Orioles were going to sign two veterans who had been out of the game for some time. In Rhodes' case, he did not pitch at all in 2012, and Tatis hasn't played since 2010. However, the Orioles may be backing away from both players.
