Orioles Targeting Wei-Yen Chen, Edwin Jackson, Paul Maholm

The Baltimore Orioles are apparently targeting another arm to add to their only off-season pitching upgrade, Japanese free-agent left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada. Among these targets are Wei-Yen Chen, Edwin Jackson, and Paul Maholm, according to Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.

We knew about Wei-Yen Chen several days ago, and reported on it in addition to rumors the club could be looking at Joe Saunders.

As one of the top remaining pitchers on the market, Jackson will probably be too expensive to land with the Orioles, considering Jackson's agent Scott Boras 5-year, $60 million demands. Rosenthal notes that Roy Oswalt and Hiroki Kuroda are both likely too expensive as well -- and would prefer to join contenders.

Rosenthal notes a realistic option is adding Paul Maholm, who missed time in August and Septemer with a strained left shoulder and had his $9.75 million option declined by the Pittsburgh Pirates following the season.
