The Orioles have traded veteran Steve Trachsel to the Chicago Cubs for 1B/3B Scott Moore and righty reliever Rock Cherry. Trachsel has started 25 games this season for the Orioles and he was 6-8 with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. He pitched 140.2 innings for the Orioles and he allowed 151 hits, walked 69 batters and whiffed 45. The Orioles got a good return for Trachsel. Moore is a 23-year old lefty hitter that can play either corner infield position. He played in 103 games in AAA ball for the Cubs this season and he was 85 for 321 (.265 avg, .899 OPS) with 61 runs scored, 19 homers and 69 RBIs. Moore does whiff alot (100 times this season) so he will need to make better contact to keep his average up. Rock Cherry is a 28 year old right handed relief pitcher which is just what the doctor ordered for the horrible bullpen of the Orioles. He pitched in 45 games (3 starts) in the minors and he was 2-0 with a 4.42 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He also worked in 12 games out of the Cubs bullpen with good results. He was 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. In 15 innings for the Cubs, Cherry allowed only 13 hits, walked 6 batters and whiffed 13.
