Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports that Mark Trumbo is taking a physical for the Orioles.

Trumbo wouldn't be taking the physical unless an agreement is in place, so it's safe to say that a deal is done. According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Trumbo is getting a three-year deal around $37 million. Some slight deferrals are involved in the deal, lowering the present-day value of the deal. Usually we think of physicals as a formality in these situations, but the Orioles are known to be sticklers with this sort of thing. However, assuming all goes well, the deal should be official soon.

Craig Kimbrel is not going to pitch in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, per Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald.

Kimbrel served as the closer for Team USA back in 2013, but he's passing this time around. With Kimbrel out of the mix, that leaves two representatives from the Red Sox participating. Xander Bogaerts will play for the Netherlands while Hanley Ramirez is set to play for the Dominican Republic.

Jhoulys Chacin will pitch for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

The expectation is that he'll pitch as a starter during the tournament. Chacin recently signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal with the Padres and should have a rotation spot to begin the year. The 29-year-old had a 4.81 ERA and 119/55 K/BB ratio in 144 innings over 22 starts and 12 relief appearances last season between the Braves and Angels.

According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, the Orioles and slugger Mark Trumbo are close to a three-year deal.

Meanwhile, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal is expected to check in under $40 million. That's a far cry from the $80 million he was reportedly seeking at one point. Rosenthal recently reported that Trumbo was willing to take a three-year deal in the $40-50 million range, but he's running out of places to go, so there's not much leverage for him at this point. The Orioles were intrigued about getting a draft pick for Trumbo, but it's hard to complain about the price if this deal comes to fruition. Stay tuned.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Orioles and Mark Trumbo are "getting close" to a deal.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal is hearing the same thing, so it sounds like this has a legitimate chance to get done. The Orioles could have netted a compensatory draft pick if Trumbo signed elsewhere, but he's running out of places to go and his price might have fallen to the point where a reunion makes the most sense. Peter Gammons recently reported that the Orioles' original offer to Trumbo was only for three years and $40 million. We might soon find out who was willing to budge.
