RP - MIA
Relief pitchers Tanner Scott and Cole Sulser are being traded to Miami.
The Orioles will be receiving a draft pick and three minor leaguers in return. Scott is headed into his sixth year in the league and sports a career 4.73 ERA (4.00 FIP) and 1.545 WHIP. Sulser is a 32-year-old reliever who had been in contention for the Orioles' closer role.
Orioles pitcher Tanner Scott walked two batters in one inning Friday in the Orioles' 9-5 loss to the Blue Jays.
Scott will look to build a solid portfolio this spring as he looks to carve out an important role in the Orioles bullpen for the 2022 season.
Tanner Scott was perfect in two-thirds of an inning with a strikeout to pick up the win on Wednesday. The Orioles snapped a 19-game losing streak with the win.
Scott has five of the Orioles 39 wins this season (12.8%), which is a staggering percentage of team wins for a relief pitcher to have.
The Orioles have placed relief pitcher Tanner Scott on the 10-day injured list with a knee injury.
Scott, 27, is 4-4 with a 3.95 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and .200 OBA through 48 relief outings this year. The southpaw has amassed 14 holds but is 0-for-2 during save opportunities. He has walked 31 batters and struck out 59 this year.
