MLB Trade Rumors: 5 Baltimore Orioles on the Block in 2014

For now the Baltimore Orioles are well in the mix in the American League East. Basically every team in the division is in the thick of the race in the early going. Assuming the Orioles stay somewhere in contention for the majority of the season, they will probably be willing to trade a few players to maximize the value of their roster going into the later part of the season and the offseason. Here are five that could be in that mix.

Reimold has been with the Orioles for a bit now but as his free agent season approaches soon, it is possible that the O's would see value in seeing what someone would give for him.

There are always teams looking for pitching and if the price and deal is right, Hunter's status as being near a free agent season could make him a nice tag along in a deal.

The O's just got Norris in a trade last season but with the way he has pitched, it is certainly possible that they might try to move him.

Hardy is a quality player that is getting closer to a free agent season. With prospects coming along nicely, it wouldn't be so strange if they shopped Hardy around.

There is basically one reason that the Orioles would consider trading Weiters and that is in the case that they know they won't be able to sign him. Unfortunately that looks to be a real possibility going forward.
