09:23 AM ET 12.30 | Executive vice president Dan Duquette remains in contact with left-hander Joe Saunders' agent. Some members of the national media keep trying to link the Orioles to Kyle Lohse, but they don't give out big contracts to free-agent pitchers and they'd rather hold onto their first-round pick. The Orioles, not the members of the national media. Manager Buck Showalter has lots of in-house candidates for the last rotation spot, including Jake Arrieta, Zach Britton, Brian Matusz, Tommy Hunter, Steve Johnson and Rule 5 pick T.J. McFarland. Showalter has always intended to give them a shot, but he's also willing to consider them for the bullpen. That's especially true of Matusz, who thrived as a lefty specialist, and Hunter, who's out of options.
