Orioles Have Discussed Casey Kotchman

The Orioles have discussed free agent first baseman Casey Kotchman, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com.  The soon-to-be 29-year-old hit .306/.378/.422 for the Rays in 563 plate appearances last season.

Kotchman has been linked to the Indians and Rays this offseason though Tampa Bay might not be in the mix any longer after re-signing Carlos Pena.  By signing Kotchman, the O's could make Chris Davis the primary DH and use Wilson Betemit as more of a utility player and part-time DH.
