The O’s could use a DH/corner bat and the Mariners have one. So this would make sense:
Orioles are actively pursuing both Mike Morse and Oliver Perez of the #Mariners today, accdg to a source. Would like a combo deal.

As for Perez, the Orioles’ greatest strength last season was its bullpen. This year it’s a different story and they’ve already added Francisco Rodriguez to bolster the pen. Perez has been an effective enough lefty specialist, though not one you’d necessarily trust over the long haul.
