Baltimore Orioles newly acquired third baseman Mark Reynolds is not only looking to make a difference in the bird’s lineup, but is keenly recruiting first baseman Adam Laroche. According to Jeff Zrebiec of Orioles Insider, Reynolds is “actively” pursuing his former team mate.
“I shot him a text message the other day. I was like ‘Come to Baltimore with me.’ He just kind of laughed and said, ‘Ha ha.’ He didn’t tell me much. That’s all I said to him. I think he would definitely be a great addition to the team. He’s a great guy. He was a good fit in our clubhouse. He’s a great first baseman and a good hitter. I think he can help any team.”
Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that LaRoche is still the Orioles top target for first base.
