Brittany Ghiroli covers the Orioles for MLB.com.
Brittany joined Ed and Steve to talk about the Orioles recent trades and call-ups as well as the upcoming series with the Cincinnati Reds.
Brittany started by talking about the Orioles trades over the weekend for De Aza and Johnson saying “those are typical Dan Duquette Oriole moves, they’re smaller moves that in the end help their depth.” On the subject of JJ Hardy’s injury Brittany said “it’s huge, this is a team already without Manny Machado and Matt Wieters and Hardy seemed pretty optimistic, it wasn’t locking up on him or as severe as April when he missed 5 games.” Brittany also talked about Steve Pearce’s injury and why Steve Lombardozzi isn’t around for the team around the playoffs.
