Bradford traded to Tampa Bay for player to be named later

Recommended Posts

Press Release:

The Orioles today announced that RHP CHAD BRADFORD was assigned to the Tampa Bay Rays via a waiver claim for a player to be named later.

Bradford, 33, was 3-3 with a 2.45 ERA (40.1IP, 11ER) in 47 relief appearances for the Orioles this season. He has appeared in 68 or more games in five of the past six seasons and he finished third among American League relievers with 78 appearances for the Orioles in 2007.

Bradford signed a three-year contract with the Orioles as a free agent on November 30, 2006.

This is pretty rare, right? Most times, you try to pass a guy thru waivers. If he gets claimed you pull him back. I'm guessing the O's and Rays have a pretty good idea who the PTBNL is?

I hope this "player to be named later" is someone decent from the Rays. Considering McPhail's usual approach to trades, this Bradford one seems VERY out of the box. Came out of nowhere.

Just when I was going to post my " Is Bradford a part of the O's future" thread. :D

I guess August is MacPhail's time for trades.
