The Orioles did have a scout in attendance at Barret Loux's bullpen session earlier this week in Texas.
Loux, a right-handed pitcher out of Texas A&M who was taken sixth overall in the 2010 draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks, failed his physical and didn't sign with Arizona because of concerns about his shoulder and elbow. He was later declared a free agent effective Sept. 1 and he's free to sign with any club.
MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reported yesterday that 15 teams had scouts on hand to watch Loux's bullpen session.
It's still too early to determine the severity of the Orioles' interest in the pitcher, who reportedly isn't in a rush to sign with a club.
