The Orioles?

Tomorrow's the deadline to file roster lists for the Rule 5 draft.

Orioles beat writer Rich Dubroff thinks Baltimore might be interested in both Jeff Niemann and Paul Janish, if he's non-tendered. (The Orioles are looking for second basemen.)

Meanwhile, the Reds inexplicably signed Skip Schumaker for 2 years, $5 million. Seems like an odd move. I don't see how he fits on the roster, unless they're planning to get rid of Jack Hannahan or Xavier Paul.

If they do trade or release Hannahan, Janish would be a good fit. They'll need a backup infielder who can play SS and 3B. Schumaker only plays 2B and OF (and none of those very well).
