2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: BRAD BRACH SHIPPED OFF TO ATLANTA TO HELP BACK-END OF PEN

The Baltimore Orioles continued their dismantling on Sunday as they came to an agreement to ship current closer Brad Brach to the Atlanta Braves for a package that is unknown as of this writing.  Having just gotten the Orioles closer gig back after Zach Britton was traded to the New York Yankees last week, Brach will now head to a Braves team whose own stopper in Arodys Vizcaino is currently on the DL with a stubborn shoulder problem.  While A.J. Minter has handled save chances in Vizcaino's place, it is not out of the question that Brach could get a look in the ninth inning in his new locale as well.  Truth be told though, Brach has been pretty miserable this season with a composite 4.85 ERA and horrid 1.77 WHIP and of late he has been even worse.  Meanwhile, the Orioles likely next man up should be Mychal Givens whose has 55 K in 47 IP this season but also an ugly 4.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.  In other words, don't run out to get him.

  1. Unrelated question. Would it be crazy to drop Bellinger for Conforto?

    1. Or would you drop Thames before you dropped Bellinger?
