Andrew Cashner will be a "Remember That Guy" player in 10 years and few people will remember the time spent with the Orioles. He has played in 45 games in the last two seasons in Charm City, but he has given black and orange exactly what was expected of him. The right-hander was just around an average pitcher in the league and he remained healthy while occasionally performing brilliant performances on the mound for two terrific teams.
He is now heading towards the rival of the division, the Red Sox, who desperately needed help. We do not know what his role will be in Boston. Could he follow Nathan Eovaldi's road and become a reliable piece? Or will it be used as a rear swing arm? This is a problem that the Orioles do not need to solve.
In exchange for Cashner, the O's received two Venezuelan hopefuls of 17 years, the player Elio Prado and the field player Noelberth Romero. Both guys will play for the Dominican League club in the near future. For what it's worth, Prado hits .303 / .400 / .418 in 33 gams this season while Romero is at .264 / .336 / .364. Neither is considered an elite prospect.
Red Sox gets Orioles RHR Cashner for 2 minor leagues – Yahoo! Sports
I do not pretend to know who is one of the players that the Orioles have received in this profession. But the fact that they are both 17 years old and heading to the Dominican League teams of the O is further evidence that this team is playing seriously long game. There is no point in retaining or trying to add expensive players in the major leagues. Go young and go all inclusive.
Orioles put Dylan Bundy on the list of injured
Andrew Cashner heading for the Red Sox and Dylan Bundy heading for the shelf, the staff of the O pitchers will be seriously put to the test. Someone must throw the remaining 70 games of the 2019 season. Things could become ugly, people.

Brandon Hyde gives his opinion on the Cashner trade. Of course, he's probably a little disgusted. John Means maintains after the worst start of his brief career in the major leagues. The Jinx All-Star could be real?
