MLB Rumors: Top 3 Orioles On The Trade Block This Summer

The summer season is the time to talk trades around the majors, starting with which teams will be sellers. There's no more sure-fire seller than the Baltimore Orioles, who are continuing their rebuild and looking for some more top prospects to join the Adley Rutschmans and Grayson Rodriguezes of the world. 

Here are the top 3 options that the Orioles will make available on the trade market:

Trey Mancini

As noted by The Athletic's Jim Bowden, Mancini is Baltimore's top trade chip. He'll be a free agent after the season, and despite his 6th solid season with the O's (currently sporting a .309 average with an .806 OPS), the 30-year-old fan favorite is unlikely to be a part of the rebuild. They should cash in on his value while they can.

Bowden mentions the San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers as team that could use Mancini to lengthen their lineups.

Jorge Lopez

The 29-year-old had been a very unsuccessful starter in the first 6 years of his career. But a shift to the back-end of the bullpen has shown him to be a pretty capable high-leverage arm. He has 6 saves along with an ERA of 1.05 and a WHIP of 1.01. He could help a number of contenders' bullpens.

Rougned Odor

A player who's best known for throwing a punch rather than packing a punch at the plate won't get a big return, but he is a veteran who can leave the yard on occasion.
