    O's agree in principle to deal with Trachsel

    From the Baltimore Sun
    O's agree in principle to deal with Trachsel
    He went 15-8 with 4.97 ERA in 2006; deal worth between $3 and $3.5 million

    Having learned earlier today that starting pitcher Kris Benson will likely have surgery for a partially torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, the Orioles have moved fast to fill the hole in the rotation, agreeing in principle to a deal with free agent pitcher Steve Trachsel, according to a baseball source.

    The deal, which will pay the 36-year-old right-hander between $3 and $3.5 million, is pending a physical, which could happen as early as today, the source said. Trachsel has a 134-143 career record and a 4.28 ERA in 13 big league seasons.

    Trachsel was 15-8 with a 4.97 ERA for the New York Mets last season but saw his stock in free agency drop significantly because of two poor outings in the playoffs. He gave up six hits and two earned runs in 3 1/3 innings in the Mets' Game Three win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Division Series and then surrendered five hits, five walks and five earned runs in one inning in New York's Game Three loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.

    If the deal becomes official, Trachsel will compete with prospects Hayden Penn and Garrett Olson for the No. 5 spot in the rotation.

    haha. Good luck Trachsel.

    I feel bad for Baltimore though, they're quickly becoming the spot for Mets rejects between him and Benson.

    I don't think anyone in the East (AL) is worried about this signing, the O's always have ya thinking they might contend and then by the all star break your no longer worried.
