Orioles Notes: Wieters, Abreu, Rhodes

The Orioles recently watched Fernando Tatis and Arthur Rhodes work out, but it doesn't look like the Os' will bring back either veteran.  Speaking of reunions, Baltimore would like to re-sign Joe Saunders but the left-hander might have a lucrative two-year deal on the table from another club.  Here's a look at the latest out of Baltimore..

  • Rich Dubroff of CSNBaltimore.com wonders when the Orioles and catcher Matt Wieters will get down to hammering out a long-term deal.  The backstop has three more seasons until he his eligible for free agency and his leverage will only increase if he can continue his strong hitting to go along with his stellar defensive play.
  • The Orioles wouldn't be a bad fit for Bobby Abreu, opines Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).  Yesterday, Heyman reported that the Marlins and Rays are among the possibilities for the veteran.  
  • Someone in the O's organization described Rhodes' tryout as a "courtesy," writes Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com.  Rhodes apparently was the one who approached the Orioles the workout and wanted to find out if he had anything left in the tank.
