The Baltimore Orioles have A.J. Burnett at the top of their free agent wish list.
Burnett would give the Orioles a quality arm in the rotation which is something they have been seeking all winter. While it would appear to be a match it is unclear if the 36-year-old Burnett even wants to continue pitching.

Previously the Pirates have expressed interest in bringing back the right hander after he had a 3.30 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in 191 innings last season.
