According to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com, the Orioles are shopping reliever Kevin Gregg and first/third baseman Mark Reynolds.
Both players are signed with the O’s through this season and have club options for 2013 according to MLBTradeRumors.com.
Gregg struggled with the O’s last season, falling out of the closers role with a 4.37 ERA in 59.2 innings pitched. He did throw down with David Ortiz though, which I have to admit, was pretty cool. He’ll make $5.8 million this season with a $6 million option for 2013. I can’t imagine many teams are lining up to take on that contract on
Reynolds is always criticized for his batting average (.221 last season), but he dropped 37 bombs in 2011. He’ll make $6.5 million this season with an $11 million option for 2013.
The return for Reynolds has to be high in my opinion. No more Jeremy Guthrie deals. Reynolds is the Orioles only true power hitter, replacing 37 home runs won’t be easy and the Orioles can’t afford to lose a deal like that.
