Orioles GM Duquette talks trading pitchers, Delmon Young
This is going to be a busy trade deadline for the Baltimore Orioles.
General manager Dan Duquette told reporters Tuesday that he is looking to add pitching to the team, in the form of either a starter or reliever:
Kevin Gausman was recently inserted into the rotation and has added a boost, but starters still held a 4.12 ERA heading into Tuesday's games, good for 19th in MLB. They can certainly stand to add a solid arm.
In addition to trading for a pitcher, Duquette is still confident the team will strike a deal for Delmon Young, who was recently designated for assignment.
