The Baltimore Orioles have acquired 23-year old righty starting pitcher Franderlyn Romero from the Cincinnati Reds for a couple of international signing slots. Romero pitched in 8 games (all starts) in A-ball for the Reds this year and he was 1-4 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He has given up 46 hits and 9 walks while whiffing 42 batters in his first 47 innings in the minors so far this year. Romero has now pitched in 78 games (62 starts) in his first seven years in the minors and he is 15-25 with a 3.10 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. I like this deal for the Orioles, as Romero gives them a decent prospect that is further along in his development than someone they can sign from another country.
