Report: Orioles have looked into signing Hanley Ramirez

Hanley Ramirez

The Baltimore Orioles could be a landing spot for free agent Hanley Ramirez.

According to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic, the Orioles have discussed signing Ramirez, though their level of interest is not clear.

As Rosenthal notes, it would be a move that doesn’t make a ton of sense on the surface. The Orioles are awash in first base/designated hitter types, which is where Ramirez would fit. Maybe they think they could get his bat going and flip him at the trade deadline without the salary obligations hanging around his neck.

Ramirez will probably find a job soon. After all, even the Red Sox were a bit surprised to find themselves letting him go.
