The Baltimore Orioles reportedly could be a serious contender in a potential Shohei Ohtani trade market due to the fact that they have many pieces that would “appeal” to the Los Angeles Angels.

There have been quite a few big stories during the 2023 MLB season, but few have been as interesting as the Baltimore Orioles’ strong play this season. The promise they showed last year has continued and the team has evolved into one of the best in the league this year.

Heading into the stretch run of the season, the team is in the thick of not just the Wild Card race but at being the American League East champions for the first time in nearly a decade. There is a chance the team could add an impact piece ahead of the Aug. 1 MLB trade deadline, but new rumors suggest they could be a contender to make the biggest trade in the league this month.
