Orioles trade Lindstrom for Saunders

The Baltimore Orioles have traded Matt Lindstrom to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Joe Saunders.  The Orioles will also get cash from the Diamondbacks.  A player to be named later will also go to the Diamondbacks.

Saunders is an innings eater starting pitcher and rooted for the Orioles as a kid.  Saunders career ERA is 4.17 and he is 6-10 this year with a 4.22 ERA.

Lindstrom is a flame thrower, the Orioles called up Jake Arrieta to replace him in the bullpen.

Lindstrom was valuable for the Orioles who have a very strong bullpen.  Arrieta has the potential to do what Lindstrom did for the Orioles.

Here is Dan Connolly’s tweet confirming the move.
