The Baltimore Orioles (14-19) made some major moves prior to their game against the Toronto Blue Jays (18-14) on Sunday. First they were able to send reliever Mychal Givens to the Colorado Rockies and left-handed starter Tommy Milone to the Atlanta Braves for prospect packages on Sunday.
Baltimore, who considers themselves to be in rebuilding mode, were able to pick up Terrin Vavra and Tyler Nevin, plus a player to be named later, from the Rockies for Givens, and two players to be named later from the Braves for Milone.
In addition the team also recalled No. 14 prospect Keegan Akin and reinstating No. 15 prospect Hunter Harvey from the 10-day injured list, as the team will be making some huge changes to the roster over the next few days.
The future is bright so far for the Orioles, who saw prospect Ryan Mountcastle continuing his fine hitting for the team, lifting his first two Major League Baseball home runs against the Blue Jays. Baltimore also saw offense from Pedro Severino and Jose Iglesias.
