Orioles trade falls through, other Day 3 notes

Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette’s media session was pushed back 30 minutes, causing speculation about the club potentially working on a move. But when Duquette did meet with the media in his room, with the team suite mysteriously occupied, the only move he spoke of was a failed trade earlier in the day that would have netted the Orioles some pitching.

The O’s had some more trade talks today, renewing old talks and starting new conversations as some of the moves around baseball have caused new players to be made available. But nothing is hot. Right now, it seems the focus has shifted to preparing for the Rule 5 Draft with Baltimore whittling the list from 60 candidates to a few finalists in anticipation of Thursday’s draft.

They continue to meet with free agents, including that of Delmon Young, though Duquette wouldn’t say if that was any closer to being done. He also reiterated that he’s hesitant to trade starting pitching.

Asked about an extension for lefty Wei-Yin Chen, Duquette reminded reporters that they had picked up Chen’s option. Pressed further, Duquette asked how often Chen’s agent, Scott Boras, negotiates extensions when his client is one year away from free agency? The answer is almost never.

Duquette will leave Thursday following the Rule 5 Draft and indicated to reporters on his flight that he won’t have a problem making that flight now. Seems there’s not a whole lot of business left to conduct here.
