Looking to get some offense from the shortstop position, the Orioles have had trade discussions with the Tampa Bay Rays about Jason Bartlett and the Minnesota Twins about J.J. Hardy, according to club sources. The talks with the Rays included discussion of a potential swap of Orioles reliever David Hernandez for Bartlett, who hit .254 with four homers and 47 RBIs in 2010 but is a career .281 hitter. However, that deal appears unlikely at this point as the Orioles are exploring other options.

The Orioles are reportedly involved in trade talks with the St. Louis involving Cardinals right-handed pitcher Kyle McClellan. According to a report from Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch , the Cardinals are shopping McClellan in order to alleviate payroll costs so that St. Louis can sign free-agent veteran right-hander Roy Oswalt. McClellan will make $2.5 million this season in his second season of arbitration eligibility. Strauss reports that the Cardinals have reached out to several teams, but the Orioles “have emerged as one of the more promising trade partners for McClellan.” McClellan worked as a reliever for his first three years with the Cardinals, but began the 2011 season in the starting rotation, mainly because of an injury to Adam Wainwright.

Here are some updates on trade talk: Heading into Wednesday morning, the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels were not involved in active discussions involving left-hander Jason Vargas.

GENEVA --The chances of reaching a new accord to lower trade barriers across the globe seemed more remote than ever yesterday as major World Trade Organization powers signaled their failure to make progress during two days of talks and postponed a resumption of serious discussions. "The experience of the last several days has been somewhat disheartening," said Susan C. Schwab, the U.S. trade representative. Schwab's aides said she would return to the United States today. India's trade minister, Kamal Nath, left the meeting yesterday afternoon.

Organized labor and the textile industry are opposed to extending the negotiating authority, which ends Friday.White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said the president "expressed his intention" to seek renewed authority for two years and "heard the concerns of the leadership."

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- A four-year round of talks to establish new rules for world trade broke off in disarray yesterday as the United States and the European Community remained deadlocked over the issue of reducing subsidies to farmers.Trade ministers had set yesterday as a deadline to reach an agreement to liberalize rules governing $4 trillion in annual world trade. The goal was an accord that could increase economic growth and living standards worldwide by removing government rules that restrict trade not only in agriculture but also in a wide range of manufactured goods, financial services and technological expertise.

The Orioles have agreed to terms with free agent right-hander Jair Jurrjens on a one-year deal, according to a report from CBSSports.com. According to the report, the former Atlanta Braves pitcher will receive a major league deal worth $1.5 million and could earn up to $4 million with incentives. He was non-tendered by the Braves this offseason after earning $5.5 million in 2012. Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette did not immediately return a text message late Thursday night.

The talk about the Orioles' interest in Diamondbacks outfielder Jason Kubel is again gaining steam, and executive vice president Dan Duquette will always inquire about a power bat like Kubel, who hit 30 homers last season and averaged 25 homers his past four full seasons. But the Orioles won't trade away a significant piece and assume Kubel's contract unless they're sold that the 30-year-old slugger will make them dramatically better in 2013. And they're not convinced. Kubel's name previously came up during the winter meetings, but the teams couldn't find a fit then.

The Orioles have shown interest in young slugging outfielder Justin Upton, whom the Arizona Diamondbacks appear willing to move, but like most of the Orioles' trade discussions this offseason, the organization seems very unwilling to make a deal that would include any of its top young players. Upton, who will make $9.75 million in the fourth year of a six-year, $51.25-million deal that runs through 2015, is just 25 himself. The Diamondbacks reportedly are open to moving either Upton or outfielder Jason Kubel, whom the Orioles have also shown interest in, but Upton is vastly more attractive on the trade market because of his age and having him under team control for the next three seasons.

Now that the Blue Jays continue to load up this offseason - agreeing to acquire NL Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey from the Mets pending signing him to an extension - I'm continuing to get questions about why the Orioles are being so quiet. The Red Sox have upgraded with a plethora of signings. The Rays dealt starter James Shields to get one of the top prospects in the game in Wil Myers to boost their anemic lineup. And the Blue Jays are showing there's no concern of a fiscal cliff in Toronto, delving out toonies in bulk like they're out of style.

The Orioles didn't return to Baltimore from the winter meetings with the power bat they coveted, but club executive vice president Dan Duquette was satisfied with the team's progress this week in Nashville, Tenn. One of the team's top priorities was to sign an outfielder, and the Orioles were able to agree to terms with left fielder Nate McLouth on Wednesday. In Thursday's Rule 5 draft, the team selected 23-year-old left-hander T.J. McFarland. “I'm glad we signed an outfielder,” Duquette told reporters Thursday morning following the Rule 5 draft.

WASHINGTON -- International trade talks, launched five years ago to reduce tariffs, quotas and other barriers to commerce worldwide, broke down in Geneva yesterday amid bitter recriminations between the United States and Europe. Peter Mandelson, chief trade negotiator for the European Union, charged that the United States sabotaged the talks by refusing to scale back domestic farm subsidies, which the Europeans say give American agriculture an edge in international competition. Top U.S. trade negotiator Susan Schwab countered that the European Union steadfastly refused to open its agricultural markets to foreign farmers.

The Orioles and Chicago Cubs are again involved in trade talks, this time about Cubs left-handed starting pitcher Rich Hill. According to industry sources, the teams have had talks about Hill, a one-time top prospect who is struggling to regain his command. One industry source said it's a "strong possibility" that Hill will wind up with the Orioles, perhaps as early as next week. The Orioles will likely give up a player to be named, who could be contingent on Hill's success in Baltimore.

Just came back from our session with Dan Duquette, and there is no real news to report except that he confirmed what I had written earlier. The Orioles have had trade talks with several teams including multiple talks with the Chicago White Sox. Duquette wouldn't get into specifics, but the Orioles have interest in Chicago's starting pitching duo of Gavin Floyd and John Danks as well as outfielder Carlos Quentin. When asked about Quentin, whom the White Sox could move to make room for Dayan Viciedo, Duquette said: "That's an interesting name; I really can't comment on specific players on other teams' rosters.

Orioles reliever Koji Uehara 's English is still a work-in progress, but that doesn't mean that he's not aware of the ongoing speculation about his future in Baltimore. "To be mentioned and to hear my name in the [trade] rumors obviously is a good thing," Uehara said through interpreter Jiwon Bang . "I'm not really thinking about that. They are just rumors, right?" For now, that is all they are, but there is growing speculation that Uehara will be moved before the July 31 trade deadline.
