The Baltimore Orioles surprised a lot of people in 2022.
On the heels of a 110-loss season and a last-place finish, the Orioles came out of nowhere and emerged as a postseason contender.
Even after trading away Jorge Lopez and Trey Mancini at the trade deadline, the Orioles remained in contention and finished 83-79, just three games behind the Tampa Bay Rays for the final American League Wild Card spot.
But it appears that they might be in on some starting pitchers this offseason.

Orioles Looking To Upgrade Rotation
There could be some significant upgrades made by the Orioles this offseason.
With Means healthy again, adding a frontline starter would give the Orioles a huge boost as they look to compete with the Rays, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the New York Yankees in the American League East.
Burnes, Lopez, and Skubal especially would be beneficial.
The Orioles window to win appears to be opening up after a surprising season, and if they add a big-name starter via trade, then teams in the AL East will be put on notice.
