Orioles Acquire Minor League Catcher

The Orioles traded a player to be named later to the Kansas City Royals for C Steven Lerud.

Grade: C

This is just a minor league filler trade. The PTBNL the Orioles are trading will most likely be cash or a player similar to Lerud at a different position. Lerud played at AA Altoona last year and hit .240/.339/.336 with 17 doubles, 4 HR, and 26 RBI. He was a 3rd round pick in the 2003 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. My guess is he’ll split catching duties at AA Bowie with Adam Donachie and will never see time in the majors as an Oriole.
