    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Texas's Austin Bibens-Dirkx became the first pitcher since 1908 (probably ever) to allow at least 11 earned runs, at least 13 hits, and at least 3 home runs in a relief appearance of 4 or fewer innings. Cleveland made it the 54th time since 1908 that a team had at least 16 runs, at least 21 hits, at least 3 home runs, and struck out 3 or fewer times. Cleveland won 16-3. Carlos Carrasco made it a six-way tie (three in each league) for the second most wins in MLB with 12 behind Severino's 14.

    But what can the Orioles expect to get for Britton? The package the Padres received for Hand from the Indians, which included Cleveland’s top prospect – catcher Francisco Mejia – isn’t comparable because Hand isn’t a rental. He still has two seasons left on his deal at a club-friendly cost, not to mention a $10-million club option for 2021, so Hand is under Indians club control for the next three seasons beyond this year.
    The Royals received three prospects from the Nationals for Herrera, but none of them were top-10 prospects for Washington. The Royals’ package was highlighted by Double-A third baseman Kelvin Gutierrez, who became the eighth best prospect for the Royals according to MLB Pipeline. That also received a 21-year-old, switch-hitting, defensive-minded center fielder playing in low-A ball in Blake Perkins and a 17-year-old live-arm Dominican pitcher in Yohanse Morel. Another important thing to note is that the Royals send Herrera to the Nationals more than a month ago, so an extra month of services likely improved their return.

    In trading Familia to the A’s on Saturday, the Mets received two promising prospects but neither one of top-tier caliber along with $1 million in international bonus slot money. They received third baseman William Toffey, a former fourth-rounder now playing in high-A who is was Oakland’s 17th best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, and a live-arm, high-strikeout reliever in right-hander Bobby Wahl, who is currently averaging 14.7 strikeouts per nine innings at Triple-A and has a 11.4 strikeouts per nine over his minor league career.
