Orioles Not Expected To Sign High-Priced Starter

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette sounds as if he does not expect to commit a large sum to a free agent pitcher, according to a report from Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. Though the club has tried to lure several free agent starters with offers, Kubatko says that rumors of significant interest in top options like Ubaldo Jimenez appear unrealistic.

Internally-developed arms are, instead, "where the Orioles are going to get value from their pitching program," said Duquette. "It's not going to come from high-priced free agents. So, if people are expecting the Orioles to go out and sign a significant pitcher, I think it's more realistic to look for good pitchers to come up through the farm system."
