The Baltimore Orioles currently in last place of the AL East and are 41.5 games back of the Boston Red Soxs. It is safe to say that the Orioles are in a full-on rebuild. Here is a list of the Baltimore Orioles who have currently been traded and what we have gotten in return for these trades.
Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers
When the Baltimore Orioles were unable to sign Manny Machado to a long-term deal the writing was on the wall for this team. So on July 19th when it was announced that Manny Machado had been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers it did not shock anyone. The Orioles in return for trading their gold glove winner received five badly needed prospects. Outfielder Yusniel Diaz, right-hander Dean Kremer, third baseman Rylan Bannon, right hander Zach Pop, and third baseman Breyvic Valera.
Zach Britton to the New York Yankees
One of the best closers in Major League Baseball just went to one of the best bullpens in baseball! The Orioles finalized a deal with their divisional rival the New York Yankees and in return received right handed pitcher Dillon Tate, right-handed pitcher Cody Carroll, and left-handed pitcher Josh Rogers. What makes this a good trade in the minds of Orioles fans is that Zach Britton is a free agent at the end of this year and can sign with any team he chooses in the future.
So who is left to trade for the Baltimore Orioles
The Baltimore Orioles have distinguished themselves as sellers this year, and are looking to make long term investments in their ball club. That means players such as Adam Jones, Mark Trumbo, Jonathan Schoop, and more are likely to be dealt over the next year year and a half. So if you are a Baltimore Orioles fan it is best to start looking towards the future!
