While the Ben Sheets market continues to be quiet, this evening we can more forcefully eliminate another team from the list of potential suitors. It appears the Baltimore Orioles are not interested.
In a post that looks at the Orioles’ young staff, Steve Melewski ends with a comment about Baltimore’s lack of interest in the potential staff ace. Melewski estimates that signing Sheets may require a two-year offer at $8MM per; he also mentions Sheets’ six DL stints. Considering these two factors, Melewski writes, "unless the club has a radical change of heart, they are just not going to take that chance."
