While the Orioles now have Burnes, Baltimore is dealing with a pair of injuries to their rotation. Both Kyle Bradish and John Means have questionable timelines as Opening Day nears. The Orioles have some intriguing pitchers in Grayson Rodriguez and Dean Kremer among others. But as Baltimore chases another AL East title, the Orioles know they can't have too many pitchers.

Julio Teheran may not be the All-Star he once was, but he offers a low-risk gamble for the Orioles. If he pans out, Baltimore added another option for their growing rotation. If he struggles, it won't cost the team much to cut him lose. The Orioles are hoping the former comes into fruition.
