ORIOLES NEED #1:
The Baltimore Orioles appear to have more than enough outfielders on the roster, especially with Adam Jones, Hyun Soo Kim, Joey Rickard, Smith and Trumbo. And usually, having more than enough outfielders creates a log jam.
But rewording the famous saying regarding pitchers, “you can never have too many outfielders”.
The Orioles have a decent fielding outfield at the moment, but if there’s one thing the team sorely needs, it’s an outfielder that can hit lefties. The Orioles are currently trying to balance the lineup, but without another decent hitter, the team is susceptible to left-handed pitching.
The team could also use another outfielder to convert Trumbo into an everyday DH.
It would be ideal to find another outfielder via the trade or free agent market, but with roughly two weeks to go before Spring Training, can the Orioles really get a deal done?
