The Baltimore Orioles are heading into a crucial offseason. All reports are that they are looking and prepared to spend some big money for the right players. With the team already possessing some exciting young bats, upgrading their pitching staff has become their top priority in free agency.

Orioles Carlos Rodon News

With Jacob deGrom coming off the market on Friday night by singing with the Texas Rangers, Carlos Rodon is reportedly a target for the Orioles.

They will have plenty of competition for Rodon's services though, especially since many people consider Rodon the best starting pitcher option left on the market.

Rodon turned into a star in 2021 with the White Sox. Pitching to a 13-5 record with a 2.37 ERA. He followed that up with another stellar season in San Francisco in 2022, going 14-8 with a 2.88 ERA.

The Orioles will be competing with some of the biggest wallets in baseball this offseason for Rodon and others, but it seems like for the first time in a while, Baltimore is prepared for it.
