Davis' homer is just hit third hit in last 14 ABs, but he's reached base in 8 of last 19 PAs because of five walks he's drawn. #Orioles

#Orioles announce they have traded RHP Brad Brach to the Atlanta Braves for International Signing Bonus Slot Money.
by Eduardo A. Encinavia twitter7/29/2018 8:50:53 PM
Brach said his career came back from the dead with #Orioles , arrived from #Padres as long man, became an All-Star, said he’s excited now for opportunity to win a ring with #Braves
by Eduardo A. Encinavia twitter7/29/2018 8:58:26 PM
Brach said he followed the trade talk, paid attention to who needed relievers, knew #Braves were a possibility. Happy he knows some people in ATL (Markakis, Flaherty on field; Chiti, Wallace in front office). #orioles

Notable that the #Orioles are acquiring intl bonus slots, not trading them away.

Yusniel Díaz just hit his first Eastern League home run for Bowie, pulling a breaking ball down the LF line. The Harrisburgs think it was foul and tried to take it away from him, but it stood.
Duquette said that three teams including #Braves were in on Brach. Said reliever market has lots of options but was able to continue new investment in intl free agents. Said #Orioles will announce intl signings next week.
by Eduardo A. Encinavia twitter7/29/2018 9:16:21 PM
Duquette said he expects Jones to remain with #Orioles beyond deadline. Said Jones has expressed his desire to stay. Duquette said that the team will field younger players next year.
by Eduardo A. Encinavia twitter7/29/2018 9:17:57 PM
Duquette said he “doesn’t know” if Jones will be here next year” but the club is going in a new direction with ownership approval. #orioles
Last two innings from Dillon Tate have been much better. Shape of slider and changeup have been more consistent, and FB is playing up off them. Not leaving as many over the plate helping as well. #Orioles
by Eduardo A. Encinavia twitter7/29/2018 9:53:17 PM
Brad Brach for international bonus money isn’t bad considering the three relievers with ERAs over four last year got a project A-ball catcher, a reliever signed out of Indy ball a year earlier, and an over-aged Class-A reliever, respectively. #Orioles
The #Orioles are actually playing good baseball, but the focus is on the team’s rebuild. On Sunday, they traded reliever Brad Brach to the #Braves and indicated they expect for Adam Jones to remain w/ club through the trade deadline.
