Still an X factor to clear with Gallardo

The expectation of some involved in Yovani Gallardos talks with the Orioles is that they will result in a three-year deal for something in the range of $40M to $45M -- although the X factor with the O's will always be the physical exams of players, a process that has killed a number of proposed deals for them through the years.

How Gallardo can bolster Orioles' rotation (2:00)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Yovani Gallardo to the Orioles seems like a bad idea and not just because the Orioles will lose their first-round pick if they sign him. This is a guy who allowed 94 hits in 71 innings in the second half and pitched even six innings just twice. Throw in some velocity issues and he looks a huge risk.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Talks between the Orioles and free agent pitcher Yovani Gallardo about a three-year contract are gaining momentum, says a baseball source. The two sides still have to make some "tweaks" to push the deal across the finish line, the source said. The Orioles would surrender a first-round draft pick if they sign Gallardo, who received a qualifying offer from the Rangers in November.

Where will Austin Jackson end up?

Jackson is a capable everyday CF who may have to accept a corner or backup OF spot at this point. He'd be an upgrade for non-contenders like the A's, Phillies and Reds or a useful piece for contenders like the Orioles, Indians, Angels and Cardinals. Unsigned free agents (Insider)

How Orioles got creative with Chris Davis

Davis' seven-year, $161M deal with the Orioles reportedly includes $42M in deferred money to be paid out over 15 years after the contract ends, from 2023 to 2037. Before the deferred money kicks in, Davis will get $119M over seven years, which sounds more reasonable. Creative contracts (Insider)

Britton, Orioles reach 1-year deal

Closer Zach Britton and Baltimore have avoided arbitration and agreed to terms on a $6.75M contract. Britton had a 1.92 ERA with 36 saves on 40 opportunities last year.

The Orioles have acquired pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne from the Padres in exchange for minor league hurler Jean Cosme. The 28-year old righty, who was 9-16 with a 4.42 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 34 starts over two seasons in San Diego, will compete for the fifth spot in Baltimore's rotation.
