The Orioles would like to add power and defense at first base, but they are considered about the draft pick compensation that is required to sign Adam LaRoche.

Washington extended a qualifying offer to LaRoche, so any team that signs him would have to part with a draft selection.

LaRoche, 33, hit .271/.343/.510 with a career-high 33 homers in 2012 after missing the majority of 2011 with a torn labrum.
