Orioles | Trade for Jason Kubel not close

The Baltimore Orioles are not close to acquiring Arizona Diamondbacks OF Jason Kubel, and it's unlikely they will land both Kubel and Detroit Tigers SP Rick Porcello, who the O's are also interested in. Other possibilities for the Orioles include re-signing SP Joe Saunders or trading for Chicago Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano, whom they have also pursued in a trade. The Cubs would need to take on the bulk of Soriano's remaining $36 million salary over the next two years, though. And Soriano would need to waive his no-trade clause. The Orioles may be willing to offer up RP Jim Johnson in order to acquire Porcello from the Tigers.
