Report: Orioles “very active” in trade talks for Dylan Cease

by Brian Barry

Earlier today on the MLB Network, MLB Insider Jon Morosi mentioned that the Baltimore Orioles are still very active in trade conversations for starting pitching, name-dropping Dylan Cease in the process. He also noted that the Miami Marlins also have a surplus of pitching options that could be of interest to the Orioles in a potential trade package.

Later on during the show in a segment highlighting Cease, Morosi went on to mention that he’s “carefully watching” the Seattle Mariners as a potential suitor as well.

Earlier this off-season, our very own Jordan Lazowski previewed ten potential trade packages for Dylan Cease, citing the Baltimore Orioles as a “perfect match” for the White Sox as a trade partner. This is largely due to their need for starting pitching and their vast pool of high-caliber prospects in the farm system. While Morosi did not allude to a potential return going back to Chicago, a package headlined by OF Colton Cowser or 3B Coby Mayo would likely be of interest to Chris Getz and the White Sox.

As the off-season continues to nudge along, Sox nation is left wondering if there are many suitors left for Cease’s services.

All six of the aforementioned teams were on our list of ten potential trade partners for Cease, and their activity in the pitching market to date could take them out of the running for him. With little impact arms left in free agency (Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery top the list), Sox fans may want to hope Baltimore antes up for Cease, if the goal is to get the best return possible.

I saw Jerry Reinsdorf the other day, he was at the gas station buying scratch off lottery tickets. Reinsdorf runs the White Sox the same way, trading away a great pitcher for lottery tickets that never payoff. Sell the White Sox Reinsdorf! White Sox fans deserve a real owner that cares about winning. Not some old man from Brooklyn stuck in the 1950’s.


Preach on brother Woody. Loved the lottery ticket joke….

I am skeptical about any rumors regarding Baltimore. They are one of the more difficult teams to deal within MLB. They over analyze medical info. They loath trading their top minor league talent.

And, they have clearly shown, they won’t spend in FA in order to compete. As far as free agency is concerned, they are almost as bad as Ebenezer Reinsdorf.
