"With today's moves, we have added to the pitching depth of our organization," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. "The pitchers we have acquired today are very competitive and have very good instincts. They have excellent control, keep the ball in the ballpark, and consistently keep the ball over the plate. Not only have we stocked the pitching in our farm system, but we also added three potential major leaguers. We'd all like to thank Brian [Matusz] for his contributions to our team, both on the field and in the community."
