Baltimore Orioles: Three Trades Too Good For The Orioles To Refuse
Orioles trade Pedro Severino, allow Chance Sisco to start the remainder of 2019
Rebuilds are all about getting young players opportunities to prove themselves at the big league level. Currently, the Orioles are evaluating the potential of Chance Sisco, who is known to have among the highest potential in the organization.
However, with the way Pedro Severino has played this season, it’s hard to always keep him out of the lineup. What’s the perfect solution? Trade him to a contender.
The Texas Rangers are battling in the AL wild-card race and badly need a catcher. If any team knows the full potential of Severino, it’s the Rangers. He hit three home runs in one game at Globe Life Park earlier this season at their expense. Now they have a chance to obtain him.
By trading Severino, the Orioles should look to obtain all important international bonus slot money and perhaps even a prospect. Pitcher Kyle Cody is one the Birds could look to target.
He’s the Rangers 28th ranked prospect who was a second-round pick of the Minnesota Twins in 2015 but returned to school after injury issues forced the Twins to back out of signing him. Now in the Texas system, he’s currently recovering from Tommy John, but his potential is off the charts. He’s 6’7 with a fastball that tops out at 98 miles per hour. Thus, the Birds should look to pounce on that potential by asking for him in this trade.
