Orioles President of baseball operations Andy MacPhail told the Baltimore Sun that his front office has contacted the representatives of several players who were not tendered contracts by their previous clubs at the deadline.
According to the Sun, those players include INFs Garrett Atkins, Ryan Garko and Mike Jacobs and CL Matt Capps and Mike MacDougal. None of the players is considered a must-have for the Orioles, but several could fit in with the club's plans, depending on how the market develops.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star talked to Royals GM Dayton Moore, who suggested he might not be able to do much more this winter due to payroll limitations. After arbitration raises, the Royals should be close to their $60MM budget. So don't look for any big free agent signings unless a player is moved to create payroll room.
Dutton says rumors continue to link the Royals to outmakers Jeff Francoeur and Yuniesky Betancourt. Dutton asked Moore why he seemingly ignored his OBP plan for Mike Jacobs, and Moore said he can only take advantage of the players who are available. Joe Posnanski comments on the recent rumors.
