Phillies Acquire RHP Dan Straily from Orioles

By Matt Rappa, Sports Talk Philly editor

Outfielder Corey Dickerson was not the Philadelphia Phillies' only acquisition on trade deadline day.

More than 30 minutes after the 4 p.m. deadline, it was announced that the club acquired right-handed starting pitcher Dan Straily from the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations.

Straily, 30, will report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. In 14 appearances and eight starts this season with the Orioles, the Redlands, California, native went 2-4 with a 9.82 ERA, 33-22 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 1.993 WHIP spanning 47 2/3 innings; had been playing for Triple-A Norfolk since being demoted in June. In his three seasons prior with the Cincinnati Reds (2016) and Miami Marlins (2017-18), Straily combined to go 29-23 with a 4.03 ERA, 431-185 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 1.256 WHIP over 90 appearances (87 starts) and 495 1/3 innings.

Acquiring the eight-year veteran yields another arm for the Phillies' pitching depth, but is far from the high-tier acquisition that Phillies fans sought, such as the Houston Astros getting Zack Greinke from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
