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.
