Player Notes
The Orioles and Rangers are discussing a trade that would send Neal Cotts to Baltimore, according to MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan.

Advice: The Orioles are in the market for a left-handed reliever with Zach Britton having settled in as the team's closer. Sullivan reported Tuesday that the Rangers were also considering an extension for the 34-year-old. Cotts has a 3.52 ERA and 50/18 K/BB ratio over 46 innings this season and could help a contending ballclub's bullpen down the stretch.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers are considering signing Neal Cotts to a contract extension.

Advice: They're fielding trade offers for Cotts, but Sullivan says extending the left-hander "could be preferable to the Rangers." Cotts has been fantastic since the beginning of last season, posting a 2.03 ERA and 115/36 K/BB ratio over 102 relief innings. "That wouldn't be bad," Cotts said of a potential extension. "Not at all, with the people we have coming back. We have had quite a few injuries and we have underplayed somewhat, but I think it will be a different situation next year. We're going to have a good ballclub."
