The Baltimore Orioles trade:

 

RP Al Patterson (A+)

 

The Chicago White Sox trade:

 

RP John Gast (ML)

$720k cash

 

The White Sox approve this deal.

 

I continue to look to shore up positions at which I detect a weakness for the future as we look to contend beginning -- hopefully -- in 2019.  Our bullpen is mostly comprised of veteran middle relievers so I continue to look to compile some younger ML-caliber relief arms.  Patterson is another in that tally.  Gast has been spectacular for us vs LH hitters since coming over earlier this season but we don't need a 29 year old lefty specialist as a rebuilding club, so sought to move him for prospects. We include a bit of cash to help cover a portion of his 2018 salary.

 

Thanks to Andy for the deal.

Orioles agree.

We were looking for lefty who could start quite some time, while he's not exactly what we were looking for, he will give us an additional option at the bottom of our rotation.

Thanks Hodges, and good luck with Patterson.
