Braves Acquire Kevin Gausman, Darren O’Day from Orioles

Braves have acquired Kevin Gausman and Darren O’Day from the Orioles in exchange for four minor league players and International Bonus money.

The Braves will send Brett Cumberland, Jean Carlos Encarnacion, Evan Phillips, Bruce Zimmerman and $2.5 MM in International Bonus Cash to the Orioles.

Gausman will slot into the rotation for the Bravos and Darren O’Day is still out for the year with a hamstring issue. Both are signed through 2020.

As for the Orioles haul, only Evan Phillips will be potentially added to the major league roster. He’s had a fantastic year as a reliever, for the Braves AAA and Major League club. Jean Carlos Encarnacion is a big hit to the Braves prospect pool, jumping up the charts at the most recent rankings.
