The Orioles made the expected move official this afternoon, recalling 25-year-old right-hander Tyler Wilson from Triple-A Norfolk.
One of the reasons the Orioles felt comfortable trading reliever Tommy Hunter is because they felt like they had enough depth in the minors that they could replace his innings and be able to more freely shuttle pieces up and down to keep the bullpen fresh.
When the dust settled following Friday afternoon's nonwaiver trade deadline, the Orioles had filled their most glaring need by dealing for an established, hot-hitting outfielder while dealing away one of the core members of their bullpen in a separate move.
The Orioles have traded right-hander Tommy Hunter to the Chicago Cubs for outfielder Junior Lake.
The Orioles have recalled right-handed reliever Mychal Givens from Double-A Bowie to take newly acquired outfielder Gerardo Parra's open spot on the roster.
The Orioles have traded minor league right hander Zach Davies to the Milwaukee Brewers for 28-year-old outfielder Gerardo Parra. The team announced that the trade was official at 1 p.m.
The Orioles hate giving up minor-leaguers with potential. And Zach Davies was one of their rare, deep draft successes – a 26th-round pick in 2011 who succeeded on every level and had made himself the 6th-best prospect in the organization’s system.
Roughly five hours before the non-waiver trade deadline and the Orioles haven’t made any moves.
