Orioles Notes: Gregg, Uehara, Trades

The Orioles signed Pat Neshek and Ronny Paulino today and also added 17-year-old Korean lefty Seong-Min Kim on a minor league deal. Here are some more notes on the club: 

  • Orioles right-hander Kevin Gregg told Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun that last year left a bad taste in his mouth. “I think we all have something to prove to ourselves and to the rest of the league," Gregg said. He posted a 4.37 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 6.0 BB/9 during his debut season in Baltimore. 
  • MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli has heard that the Orioles’ interest in re-acquiring Koji Uehara has been overstated. It doesn’t seem likely that the right-hander will be traded back to Baltimore at this point. He is drawing trade interest after posting a 2.35 ERA with 11.8 K/9 and 1.2 BB/9 in 65 innings for the Orioles and Rangers in 2011. 
  • The Orioles aren’t comfortable with the demands potential trade partners are making, Encina reports. The Orioles discussed deals with the Cardinals and the Rangers, who are both looking to unload salary. The 2011 World Series foes have both been linked to Roy Oswalt in recent weeks.

    “The Orioles aren’t comfortable with the demands potential trade partners are making”.

    Read: The Orioles aren’t comfortable with their lack of trade pieces.

      Or maybe, just maybe, the Orioles aren’t comfortable with other team’s demands. Sometimes a fish is a fish.

      It isn’t like it would take a lot of value to get the Cardinals’ or Rangers’  fifth starters in a salary dump. I doubt real prospects are even involved in the convo.

      • Rumor has it the Cards are asking for a mid-level prospect.  McClellan does have a while to go before free agency.

        • It’s not like the Orioles have any pressing NEED for McClellan and, while he could be a nice piece, if it means parting with anyone worth anything (of which the Orioles only have maybe 5 guys), it’s a definite pass.

          McClellan salary is only 2.5 million, come on.

    “Orioles right-hander Kevin Gregg told Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun that last year left a bad taste in his mouth.”

    Oh man.. Imagine how bad a taste he left in the mouthes of fans for every team he has ever pitched for?

    That guy should apologize to fans when he is ushered out the door everytime.

    What does Kevin Gregg have to prove?!

    We already know he’s garbage.
