Winter Meetings Day 3

Good afternoon from the Winter Meetings Day 3, the last full day here in San Diego.

Not much buzzing in the lobby regarding Baltimore, but there remains a sense in the Orioles organization that executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette will get a deal done in the next day or so, not including their expected Rule 5 picks. And, no, it won’t be a blockbuster move.

Baltimore’s preference is to sign a free agent, but it may be easier for them to acquire a player via trade given the depth in their Minor League system. Duquette has discussed trades with a handful of teams, including reported interest in Phillies outfielder Marlon Byrd. Adding an outfielder remains their top priority.

Here’s the list again of available free-agent outfielders, via MLB Trade Rumors. The O’s have checked in with a number of these guys as they try to find ways to replace Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz, including meeting yesterday with Delmon Young’s agent.
