And Jeffrey Hunter was traded for a package including Uhura.
Right-hander Koji Uehara of the Orioles have reportedly been traded to the Rangers in exchange for corner infielder Chris Davis and pitcher Tommy Hunter (Baltimore Sun via Twitter)...
Uehara, 36, is pretty underrated—likely due to playing for the non-contending Orioles. He has a 1.72 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 47 innings this season. He’ll fit quite nicely in Texas as an eighth-inning bridge to Neftali Feliz.
Davis, 25, has shown signs in the past of being a prolific power hitter, but strikeout woes have plagued him… the Orioles could immediately slip Davis in at first base and trade Derrek Lee. There have been reports that Lee is on the Pirates’ radar.
Hunter, 24, is 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in limited time this season for the Rangers.
for his generous support.
