The Baltimore Orioles are on the lookout for starting rotation help before the July 31st MLB trade deadline and one name that has come up as a target is Cincinnati Reds RHP Mike Leake.
Via MLB Trade Rumors:
While Leake is not a game-changer in the same mold of his teammate (and another Orioles trade target) RHP Johnny Cueto, he is still a serviceable back end starter who keeps the ball down in the zone and limits troublesome fly balls when on his mark.
Leake, 27, is 6-5 on the year with a 4.08 ERA and 1.238 WHIP. He is a free agent after this season and any trade suitor would be on the hook for just under half of his $9.78 million salary.Back to the Baltimore Orioles Newsfeed
