Huh. I didn’t have Jummy Paredes in my big trade deadline preview. Shameful oversight. Anyway:
The Orioles have acquired INF/OF Jimmy Paredes from the Royals in exchange for cash considerations. Paredes has been optioned to AAA Norfolk

Paredes has spent most of the season in the minors, where he has where he put up a line of .305/.332/.457 in 280 plate appearances. In the bigs, however, he has managed a mere .233/.272/.308 in 406 plate appearances.
