The Orioles are looking for a power slugger as the winter meetings begin.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun writes that the team is more likely to trade for a slugger than sign one through free agency (see: Hamilton, Josh).

"I had one club source tell me that the team has the pieces to pull off a pretty significant deal for a power hitter right now – but they have to decide whether to pull the trigger," Connolly writes.

Baltimore has made adding a power hitter their top priority.
