ORIOLES NEED #3:

Now, the ideal candidate would be…Vance Worley for a pay cut. But since the Orioles don’t seem interested in a reunion, there are other options on the market. Kris Medlen, Doug Fister, Jason Hammel, Travis Wood and Colby Lewis all come to mind.

Despite this role being the easiest to fill, the Orioles probably aren’t going to go for the big names in the free agent market since it would cost them a pretty penny. That’s why it seems more likely that they would try to fill the role internally.
