    Any idea what the Braves gave up to get him?
    Gausman still has 2 years of team control after this year.

    They gave up several prospects...
    In exchange for Gausman and O’Day, the Orioles received four prospects — right-hander Evan Phillips, infielder Jean Carlos Encarnación, catcher Brett Cumberland and left-hander Bruce Zimmermann — and international signing bonus slot money.

    Encarnacion was the highest prospect they gave up. He was apparently their 14th ranked prospect. Cumberland was the next highest (30th).

    We are several years into this re-build (Sellout) and still in last place, ten games under .500.

    Personally, I don't think trading Billy or Scooter changes that a lot right now.
    I wouldn't trade Scooter either but I'm tired of waiting around for Billy to learn how to bunt and hit the ball on the ground. Heck he's not really stealing bases at the same rate anymore. About all he can do is play defense otherwise he wouldn't be batting 9th.

    With Blake Snell on the disabled list Tampa Bay now has zero starting pitchers on their depth chart. Zero.

    Sounds like a Durham Bulls problem.
