After adding veteran starter Kevin Millwood in a trade with the Rangers and agreeing to terms with left-handed closer Mike Gonzalez and former Rockies 3B Garrett Atkins, team officials acknowledged that their next move probably won't come until 2010, as reported by the Baltimore .
The same report also notes that a team official denied reports that the Orioles are pursuing Matt Holliday and Adrian Gonzalez.

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.

In his blog, Peter Schmuck of the Baltimore Sun says that in order to rebuild, Andy MacPhail is not interested in dealing any of the Orioles' top prospects but is skeptical that the O's can pull off a blockbuster trade.
Another report in the Baltimore Sun lists these players as trade targets for O's:
Garrett Atkins, Miguel Cabrera, Adrian Gonzalez, Edwin Jackson, Matt Lindstrom and Kevin Millwood.

Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch spoke to Cardinals GM John Mozeliak, who has a gut feeling that it's less than 50-50 that third baseman Troy Glaus will play in 2009. Glaus is trying to come back from January shoulder surgery. He'll be a free agent after the season.
According to Strauss, the Cardinals will scour the trade market for a righthanded-hitting third baseman or outfielder. Strauss names Mark DeRosa (.267/.332/.450) and Garrett Atkins (.192/.272/.291) as candidates. I found some more players who could fit the bill: Melvin Mora, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Adrian Beltre, Scott Hairston, Jermaine Dye, Jose Guillen, Josh Willingham, Matt Holliday, Marlon Byrd, Austin Kearns, Eric Byrnes, and Ben Francisco.
