Good morning, Birdland!
Andrew Cashner will be a "Remember That Guy" player in 10 years, and few will remember the time he spent with the Orioles. He pitched in 45 games over the past two seasons in Charm City, but he gave the black and orange almost exactly what was expected of him. The right was around an average pitcher in the league and he stayed pretty healthy while occasionally giving brilliant performances on the mound for two terrible teams.
Now he is targeting the Red Sox division rival, who desperately needed help to pitch. It is not clear what his role will be in Boston. Could you follow Nathan Eovaldi's route and become a reliable piece of bullpen? Or will it continue as a back-end rotation arm? That is a problem that the Orioles do not need to solve.
In exchange for Cashner, the O received two Venezuelan prospects of 17 years, the outfielder Elio Prado and the infielder Noelberth Romero. Both will play for the club's Dominican League team in the immediate future. For what it's worth, Prado is hitting .303 / .400 / .418 in 33 games this season, while Romero is at .264 / .336 / .364. Neither is considered an elite perspective.

I will not pretend to know who is any of the players that received the Orioles in this exchange. But the fact that both are 17 years old and address the Dominican League O teams is another proof that this team is seriously playing the long game. It does not make sense to keep or try to add expensive high-level league players. Go young and enter everything.

With Andrew Cashner with the Red Sox and Dylan Bundy heading towards the shelf, the O pitching staff is going to get very tense. Someone has to throw the remaining 70 games that remain in the 2019 season. Things can get ugly, folks.

Brandon Hyde gives his opinion on Cashner's trade. Understandably, he's probably a little sad. In addition, John Means speaks after the worst start of his brief career in the big leagues. The jinx star could be real?
