After adding starting pitcher Scott Feldman and reliever Francisco Rodriguez this month the Orioles have filled two needs before July 31’s non-waiver trade deadline but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still looking.

One of the Orioles top scouts has been in Seattle this week watching the Mariners and the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota’s former MVP Justin Morneau is on the trade block and so may be several Mariners’ hitters including Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales. Seattle slugger Mike Morse whom the Orioles have liked for years is currently rehabbing from a quadriceps injury in Triple-A. All four players are pending free agents.

According to an industry source the Orioles have contacted the Twins abut Morneau – who has about $6 million remaining on his deal – but the conversations were defined as preliminary.
