Orioles lineup and more trade tidbits
It’s been an incredibly busy day for the Orioles, who traded for Gerardo Parra from the Brewers (for prospect Zach Davies) and traded Tommy Hunter to the Cubs (for outfielder Junior Lake). The O’s also designated Bud Norris for assignment and added Mychal Givens to the bullpen. Mike Wright is also here.
The O’s are set to make another move before the game to add Parra, who is flying into DC and should arrive by game time. Stay tuned.
Wright is another option for the Orioles should Chris Tillman, who rolled his ankle covering first base, not be able to make his scheduled start. Wright was slated to start for Triple-A Norfolk today.
I’ll have plenty more notes and quotes, including some from Dan Duquette, up shortly on Orioles.com. Here’s the O’s lineup…

Jimmy Paredes DH
Adam Jones CF
Chris Davis RF
Matt Wieters C
