Zaun Traded To Rays

The Orioles have traded C Gregg Zaun to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later. C Chad Moeller has been recalled from AAA Norfolk.

Grade: C

Its hard to give this trade a grade until we know who the player to be named later is, but its not a big loss either way. Zaun was doing a very good job as the back up catcher, but a guy that plays once or twice a month isn’t exactly the most important spot on the roster. Moeller will be brought back up to take Zaun’s place. He was batting .203/.242/.254 at AAA Norfolk, which is terrible, but all he has to do is do a good job defensively for the rest of the year. I’m thinking a part of this was to give Wieters some more playing time since Zaun was doing so well he was getting two or more starts a week. And if we can get something for him? Why not. I’ll be interested to see who it is.
