The Baltimore Contingency

First up is what I've dubbed, the "Baltimore Contingency" - made up of Colton Cowser and Heston Kjerstad. Now before I continue, there's absolutely no way that we can land both, but I'd gladly take either as a solid RF option. They each project to have average to slightly above average hit potential as well as power - you know, the thing that our current outfield is lacking.

Anyways, acquiring either Cowser or Kjerstad would allow Francona to move Straw to the bench and play Brennan in CF most games. And both come with a ton of control remaining, as Cowser only recently made his MLB debut. Could an NBA 3-team type deal, aid the Orioles in their pursuit of Shohei Ohtani? It would seem likely, Baltimore already has a logjam in the outfield - if the Guards can help alleviate that by sending some replacement prospects, it could help Baltimore should they strike a deal with the Angels.
