Report: Orioles interested in Padres' Will Venable, Seth Smith


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) The Orioles have continued dialogue with the Padres regarding trading for an outfielder, with Padres outfielders Will Venable and Seth Smith drawing the most interest from the team, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Either player would address the team's need for lefthanded hitters who fare well against righthanded pitching. While neither figures to receive significant playing time in San Diego after the Padres imported three outfielders via trade this offseason, either Smith or Venable would be expected to assume a platoon role with Baltimore at the outset of the season with the potential to earn a full-time starting position.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pierzynski will fill a veteran presence to complement young catcher Christian Bethancourt, and the agreement also means the Braves are serious about moving forward with Evan Gattis in left field full-time, according to Eye On Baseball.

Pierzynski hit .251/.288/.337 in 338 at-bats between Boston and St. Louis in 2014. However, he managed to smack a combined 44 home runs over his previous two seasons.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Johnny Cueto's agent, Bryce Dixon, will give the Reds through the winter and spring to try to negotiate for a long-term deal, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. Cueto is seeking for a contract comparable to Jon Lester and Max Scherzer.

"He'll give it until Opening Day," Dixon said by phone. "Then he's going to be focused on the season and trying to do what he can for Cincinnati. If something happens, we're probably to keep it to this off-season. We're not going to be looking to do something this summer."

Cueto, who won a career-high 20 games in 2014, is in the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million contract. He posted a 2.25 ERA and 242:65 K:BB ratio over 243 2/3 innings last season.
