The Baltimore Orioles are interested in bringing back Koji Uehara from the Texas Rangers, according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi. Rosenthal adds that the club is also pursuing Kyle McClellan of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Britt Ghiroli says that McClellan's $2.5 million salary for 2012 is something the Orioles could take on, and adds at that while the interest may be mutual for a Uehara reunion, it comes down to what the Texas Rangers would want in return to make the move:
- Twitter / @jonmorosi - "#Orioles are interested in Koji Uehara. He lives in Baltimore, has a partial no-trade clause, and would welcome such a move. #Rangers"
- Twitter / @Ken_Rosenthal - Sources:,#Orioles pursuing #Rangers' Uehara as well as #STLCards' McClellan. Could complicate Cardinals' plan to clear $$$ for Oswalt. #MLB

" Those talks have been going on since Dallas’ Winter Meetings, as MLB.com first reported, and while Uehara has a limited no-trade clause he’s made it no secret how much he loved his time in Baltimore. The problem with a potential trade with the Rangers –and really any trade of significance — becomes what the Orioles can afford to give up in return."
