Lance Lynn is one of the most wanted pitchers in free agency this winter.
After several seasons putting up good numbers with the Cardinals, the thirty-year-old pitcher became a free agent and now seeks a team for the 2018 campaign.
According to information from MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Baltimore Orioles would be interested in signing Lynn although it would not be their first choice.

Morosi explains that the first option for the orange team in the AL East is Alex Cobb, now a free agent after finishing his contract with the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Orioles are in great need of improving their pitching, starting and bullpen, after finishing with a 5.70 ERA, the worst of all the Big Leagues.
Lynn who threw for a 3.43 ERA with 11 wins and 8 losses, received a qualifying offer from the Cardinals so the signing team will have to hand over a draft pick to Red Birds.
