FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: ORIOLES TO ADD EITHER DEXTER FOWLER OR TRADE FOR JAY BRUCE

The Baltimore Orioles are very busy on the eve of spring training as they continue to negotiate with free agent SP Yovani Gallardo, while also talking with free agent outfielder Dexter Fowler.  With prices coming way down on the few remaining free agents, the Orioles are trying to take advantage and add a few more pieces before spring training begins.  However both Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman report that Jay Bruce remains a big target in a possible trade, with the O's dangling some key minor league pieces. 

Analysis:  It sounds like the Orioles are ready to strike here.  Bruce is a vastly overrated fantasy baseball outfielder who never completely panned out considering the hype when he first came up.  He is strictly just a home run specialist and nothing more.  As far as Fowler and Gallardo, both are very useful pieces but both have their warts as well.
