Shintaro Fujinami, 29, who has been rebounding from a major slump, has been traded to a team with a shot at the postseason.온라인카지노
The Oakland Athletics are sending Fujinami to the Baltimore Orioles, Fox Sports reported on Tuesday.
In exchange for Fujinami is left-hander Easton Lucas, 27, who has a 4.26 ERA in nine games at Triple-A this season.
Fujinami, who was rumored to be on his way out as recently as May, comes to the postseason-bound Orioles, who are in first place in the 20-team division.
Through 19 games, Fujinami has pitched 49 1/3 innings in 34 starts this season, going 5-8 with a 3.57 ERA and 8.57 WHIP. He has 51 strikeouts.
A very poor ERA. However, after a 3.97 ERA last month, Fujinami has stabilized this month with a 2.25 ERA.
Fujinami has been credited with adjusting to major league ball since May. Fujinami has significantly increased his fastball velocity, which was one of the lowest in the majors.
His four-seam fastball, which tops out at over 100 mph, is showing signs of life. If Fujinami can keep up his performance this month, it will be a huge boost for the Baltimore bullpen.
