Orioles looking to deal? 

January, 23, 2013

Could the Baltimore Orioles be planning a big splash late in the Hot Stove season?

The Orioles have been relatively quiet this winter (unless you consider the re-signing of Nate McLouth a blockbuster), and who can blame them following a 93-win season and their first-playoff berth since 1997? But with a few weeks to go before spring training, the Birds are pursuing a trade for Diamondbacks outfielder Jason Kubel and also are interested in Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello, reports Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com.
