The Orioles have made offers to several free agents, executive vice president Dan Duquette said on Tuesday. No surprise there. The assumption is that they are mid-tier guys -- solid players but the not the big-time money guys. Yet one player that seemed like a good fit for several reasons is not on the radar: left fielder Josh Willingham. The Orioles have not inquired about him at all -- not here, not at all this offseason. Willingham, 32, is definitely a guy who is going to land a solid contract after a 29-homer, 98-RBI season for the Oakland A's last year.

The story angle from Thursday night was simple: Chris Tillman is turning into an ace before our very eyes . Or, at the very least, inching closer to that rarified air. After allowing two runs on six hits - and no walks - in seven innings in the hostile environs of Fenway Park, Tillman is now 15-4 with a 3.61 ERA this season. And on the road, where aces are made, he is 8-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 12 starts. He's given up two earned runs or fewer in nine of those. In nine career starts against the Red Sox, Tillman is 4-1 with a 2.15 ERA. He's just 25 - and not that far removed from 4A status, limbo between the majors and the minors.

In an effort to bolster their lineup, the Orioles have placed a trade waiver claim on Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham and are attempting to negotiate a deal, according to an industry source. The Orioles have until Friday afternoon - 48 hours after making the claim - to broker a trade with the Twins, who would likely need a prospect in return. If the teams can't reach a deal, the Twins can pull Willingham off waivers and keep him on their roster. During the trade waiver process that began this month, the Orioles have claimed several players, according to multiple sources.

We learned late last night that the Orioles were the team that claimed Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham off trade waivers . So does that mean Willingham will be an Oriole? Not necessarily. It just means the Orioles are attempting to work out a deal with the Twins, and have until about noon Friday to do so. If not, the Twins would pull Willingham back. And that will be the end of that. If the Twins attempted to put Willingham through trade waivers a second time and he gets claimed, then he would be gone from Minnesota.

Outfielder Josh Willingham agreed to a $4.6 million contract for 2010 with the Washington Nationals, who also avoided salary arbitration with three other players. Catchers Jesus Flores and Wil Nieves and right-hander Jason Bergmann agreed to one-year deals with Washington on Tuesday, the day players and teams submitted figures for arbitration. Flores and Bergmann got salaries of $750,000; Nieves agreed to a $700,000 deal. Redskins: Guard Chad Rinehart was arrested Monday on public intoxication charges in Iowa after he pulled on a locked door at a pizza restaurant in Des Moines, Iowa .

When they came together in the spring, the Washington Nationals often heard a phrase that reminded them of the team's task in relation to the state of the franchise. The maxim, manager Jim Riggleman said, was "keeping the needle moving forward." The Nationals' 39-50 record at the All-Star break left them with a tinge of disappointment after a promising start that had them a game out of first in mid-May. The Nationals could have played better; they believe they should have. Despite the letdown of again finding themselves in last place, the Nationals no longer must ward off ridicule, charges of incompetence or the league's worst record.

The Orioles continue to attempt to bring in a hitter, claiming Seattle Mariners outfielder-first baseman Michael Morse off trade waivers after doing the same with Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham on Wednesday, according to industry sources. That doesn't mean the Orioles have landed either right-handed power hitter -- at least not yet. Once a player is claimed on revocable, trade waivers, the clubs have 48 hours to work out a deal -- that would be until Friday at noon on Willingham and Friday or Saturday for Morse, depending on when he was officially claimed.

BOSTON - In their ongoing pursuit of adding a hitter to a potential postseason roster, the Orioles have claimed Seattle Mariners outfielder-first baseman Michael Morse off trade waivers - which comes on the heels of the news that the Orioles also had claimed Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham. That doesn't mean the Orioles have landed either right-handed power hitter - at least not yet. Once a player is claimed on revocable trade waivers, the clubs have 48 hours to work out a deal; there should be a resolution involving both Friday afternoon.

Orioles rookie left-hander Zach Britton was in no mood to mince words after the worst start of his young career. He chastised himself for shaking off catcher Matt Wieters and wanting to throw a changeup on Josh Willingham's decisive swing of the game. He took accountability for a failure to hold a three-run lead even for an inning, and he lamented getting swept by an Oakland Athletics team that Britton said the Orioles "should handle. " The offensively challenged Orioles finally bunched together some runs with a four-run top of the fifth.
