The Baltimore Orioles acquire a proven starter through trade.
The Orioles announced on the 27th (Korean time) that they acquired left-hander Cole Irvin (29) through a trade with the Oakland Athletics.
Together with Irvin, they will give up minor league infielder Darrell Hernaise (22) in exchange for minor league right-hander Kyle Burbitski (25). 안전놀이터
He moved to Oakland from the Philadelphia Phillies ahead of the 2021 season, and then went through a transition period. Over two seasons, he went 19-28 with a 4.11 earned run average in 62 starts and 359 1/3 innings. He posted a 1.244 WHIP with 1.2 home runs per 9 innings, 2.0 walks and 6.3 strikeouts.
Burbitski pitched 126 1/3 innings in 23 games in low single-A and high single-A last season, posting a 4.63 ERA. He struck out 140 while allowing just 30 walks. ‘Baseball America’ evaluated him as a prospect with the best control ability inside the Oakland club.
Hernaise recorded a batting average of 0.273, an on-base percentage of 0.341, a slugging percentage of 0.438, 12 homers, 62 points and 32 steals in 105 games from lower single A to double A last season.
This trade was made when the interests of Baltimore, which needed reinforcement of the starting lineup, and Oakland, which added starting players by recruiting Drew Luchinski and Shintaro Fujinami ahead of this season, coincided.
