Orioles Are Open To Trading Matt Weiters
It's been speculated that the Orioles might have to choose between signing either Matt Weiters or Chris Davis to a long-term extension and considering that there was never momentum towards a deal with Weiters earlier in the season, it appears the Orioles are prepared to shift their focus.
According to Ken Rosenthal, the Orioles are now willing to trade Weiters, who is due to hit the free agent market after the 2015 season:

Extensions for both unlikely. Boras prefers clients to determine their values on open market.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) November 13, 2013
