Orioles trade Freddy Garcia to Braves for cash

The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles have traded minor league right-hander Freddy Garcia to the Atlanta Braves for cash considerations, the team announced.

Garcia, 36, was 3-5 with a 5.77 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) with the Orioles this year. His last appearance in the majors was June 23 when he allowed seven earned runs in 2 1/3 innings to the Toronto Blue Jays. He was sent to Norfolk to make room for Kevin Gausman.

Garcia was 8-3 with a 2.84 ERA for the Tides in 13 starts. He could have been in line for a September call-up, but there really was no obvious spot for him.
