B.J. Upton

Upton, 28, is enigmatic, but undoubtedly talented. He's also playoff tested. The Orioles could use another quality outfielder -- a left fielder (while Nolan Reimold attempts to come back from neck surgery) who could play center if something happened to Adam Jones -- with pop in his bat. He's also a Norfolk, Va., native and former travel team buddy of Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds. Orioles' bottom line: Upton is another big-swinging, high strikeout, low on-base percentage player. The Orioles likely will pass given the expected price tag. J. Meric, Getty Images
