A’s Trade Fox For Wolf; Rob Deer Has No Comment

BALTIMORE (AP)—The Baltimore Orioles added depth to their struggling offense Tuesday by obtaining utility player Jake Fox from the Oakland Athletics for minor league pitcher Ross Wolf and cash.

Rob Deer was not involved in this trade.

The best part of this story comes a graf later. Obviously organizations–especially last-place, dead-to-the-neck-up ones–tend to overstate the importance of their new, largely meaningless mid-season acquisitions, but this thinking seems particularly wishful.

Fox hit .214 with two home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games for the A’s this season

“Fox gives us another bat,” Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said. “He’s also a catcher, plays first base, third base, outfield, so there’s some flexibility for us.”

I bet he’s also really good at pranks and canasta.
