According to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com, the Orioles and Rangers met earlier today and one of the topics discussed was a possible trade involving Uehara.
Uehara posted an outstanding 3.03 ERA and 165/25 K/BB ratio over 157 2/3 innings during his time with Baltimore, but wasn’t nearly as effective during a small sample after being traded to the Rangers at the deadline. He gave up eight home runs over just 19 1/3 innings (including the ALDS and ALCS) and found himself left off the World Series roster.
It should be said that Uehara compiled an excellent 24/3 K/BB ratio during the same timespan, so he isn’t exactly a lost cause here. The Rangers aren’t completely finished with their bullpen, so it might not be so easy to pry him away. The 36-year-old right-hander is under contract for $4 million next season.
