D-backs want young pitching from Orioles for Jason Kubel

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Jason Kubel is still on the trading block, with the Baltimore Orioles the latest team linked to getting him.

The Arizona Diamondbacks would like young pitchers from the Baltimore Orioles if they are to trade outfielder Jason Kubel, but the Orioles have resisted doing that, according to a tweet from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Kubel, along with fellow outfielder Justin Upton, has been on the trading block for the entire offseason. The Diamondbacks are looking to lighten the load of their talented outfield, and will try to get help in other areas for their services.

Kubel hit .253 with 30 home runs and 90 RBIs this past season for the Diamondbacks. Between Kubel and Upton, Kubel is seen on the market as the one that will bring a lesser package of players back to the Diamondbacks. But with each passing day, the Diamondbacks are just looking for an opportunity to unload one of their outfielders, preferably for some pitching help.

Other teams rumored to be interested in acquiring Kubel include the Chicago White Sox.
