Interest in Duchscherer: The remaining free-agent starter list hasn't changed much, although Carl Pavano, as expected, re-signed with the Minnesota Twins. The name that stands out to me is Justin Duchscherer, who went 10-8 with a 2.54 ERA and made the All-Star team with the Oakland Athletics in 2008. However, he's made only five starts since that season because of a combination of things, from shoulder problems to back and hip problems to clinical depression. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reported last night that Duchscherer, 33, has held private workouts for two American League teams. I can confirm that the Orioles were not one of those teams, but they still have some interest in the right-hander. Duchscherer will likely have another open workout for any interested teams in the next seven to 10 days, and I'd suspect that the Orioles will be there as the pitcher is intent on showing teams that he is 100 percent healthy after hip surgery in June. Duchscherer's son lives in South Jersey and one of the pitcher's priorities is to pitch closer to his son, so geographical factors work in the Orioles' favor. Ducscherer also wants an opportunity to crack a major league rotation, and the Orioles can offer that as well.
