The Baltimore Orioles, currently on the lookout for help in both corner outfield spots, might be zeroing in on a veteran speedster.

Rajai Davis is among the players that the Orioles are pursuing, according to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun.

The Orioles interest in Davis has reportedly increased significantly as of late, as the team is now more drawn to him than Angel Pagan, another outfielder the team has been in contact with.

Davis is coming off a productive season with the Cleveland Indians. He led the American League in stolen bases with 43 and also delivered an uncharacteristic 12 home runs - by far the most of his career. He's most remembered for his clutch, game-tying home run in Game 7 of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs.

The Orioles have been searching for an upgrade in the outfield for most of the offseason. They pursued free-agent Mark Trumbo, reportedly offering him a four-year deal that was rejected. In addition to Davis, Pagan, and Trumbo, the Orioles have been tied to Michael Saunders, Colby Rasmus, and Curtis Granderson of the New York Mets.
