5. Will Dan Duquette pull off a late spring deal?

Baseball operations guru Dan Duquette (right) is going to have his work cut out for him during the final weeks of spring training, because there are some tough roster decisions looming. For instance, what do you do with Tommy Hunter, who is out of minor league options, if there is no place in the bullpen for him? The Orioles arrived in camp with as many as 14 candidates for the starting rotation. Several of them will slip back into the rotation at Triple-A Norfolk, but there is some overcrowding that will need to be alleviated. Duquette is always in the market for a good veteran pitcher, so maybe he'll be able to pair up with some team that needs depth and wants to gamble on a young starter or two.
