The Baltimore Orioles are preparing to sell off pieces of their roster, according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Rosenthal reports that Orioles GM Dan Duquette is “informing teams that he is willing to deal his top relievers and potential free-agent outfielder Seth Smith as long as he receives ownership approval.”
Britton, the A.L. saves leader in 2016, has drawn interest from the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Rosenthal. The 29-year-old is eligible for arbitration this off-season and can become a free agent after the 2018 season.
Catcher Welington Castillo is also named by Rosenthal as a trade candidate from Baltimore, which entered play on Sunday 8 1/2 games back of the Boston Red Sox for first place in the A.L. East.
The MLB non-waiver trade deadline is 4 p.m. ET, July 31.
