Orioles trade reliever Preston Guilmet to the Pirates for cash considerations

The Orioles have traded reliever Preston Guilmet to the Pirates for cash considerations, MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports. Guilmet had been designated for assignment by the Orioles near the end of the season in order to make room for Alexi Casilla.

Guilmet, 27, hasn’t logged too many innings at the major league level, mustering an unimpressive 6.89 ERA in 15 2/3 innings. However, he has shown good strikeout and walk numbers in the minors, including in each of the past two seasons at Triple-A Columbus (Indians, 2013) and Norfolk (Orioles, 2014), striking out a combined 126 and walking 24 in 112 2/3 innings.

We’re less than four hours away from the first pitch of the 2019 World Series. We’ve known for a couple of days that it’d be all about Max Scherzer facing Gerrit Cole. As of a few moments ago we know the lineups each of those aces will face:

NATIONALS

1. Trea Turner (R) SS
2. Adam Eaton (L) RF
3. Anthony Rendon (R) 3B
4. Juan Soto (L) LF
5. Howie Kendrick (R) DH
6. Asdrúbal Cabrera (S) 2B
7. Ryan Zimmerman (R) 1B
8. Kurt Suzuki (R) C
9. Víctor Robles (R) CF

As expected, Howie Kendrick gets the nod at DH, which takes Washington’s worst infield glove out of the equation while keeping his bat in play.

ASTROS

1. George Springer (R) CF
2. José Altuve (R) 2B
3. Michael Brantley (L) LF
4. Alex Bregman (R) 3B
5. Yuli Gurriel (R) 1B
6. Carlos Correa (R) SS
7. Yordan Álvarez (L) DH
8. Martín Maldonado (R) C
9. Josh Reddick (L) RF

We’re pretty much used to these guys at this point.
