Friend of MLBTR Jeff Zrebiec reports on the Orioles Winter Meetings situation. All Orioles are available, and Miguel Tejada and Erik Bedard figure to be in all sorts of rumors.
A few days ago Zrebiec named the Yankees, Mets, Mariners, Angels, and Dodgers as the teams that have inquired on Bedard. Today he adds the Diamondbacks to that list.
As for Tejada, we know he’s a fallback option if the Halos can’t acquire Miguel Cabrera. One new one is the Giants, who have an opening at third base. The Orioles won’t pry Matt Cain or Tim Lincecum loose, but maybe Jonathan Sanchez would be a start. Hard to see the two teams matching up though. Plus Tejada makes little sense for the Giants.
Meanwhile, Jon Heyman confirms the Giants’ interest and adds the Astros to the mix. They’ve been interested in before, but Roy Oswalt was a part of those talks way back when. These days the O’s have interest in Adam Everett, Michael Bourn, and various prospects. Hopefully they can do better than that!
