The O's dismantling began this afternoon as Miguel Tejada was traded to San Diego for right-hander Wynn Pelzer. Not quite the haul they got back in 2007 when the O's fleeced Houston for Matt Albers, Troy Patton, Dennis Sarfate and Luke Scott.
Funny that Scott was considered a throw-in at the time. Now he's one of their top sluggers.
I can say that I don't know much about Pelzer, a quick look at his stats suggest that he needs to get the walks down if he's going to advance, but he was San Diego's 7th best prospect - so he has that going for him.
Look for Josh Bell to get a good look at 3rd base for the rest of the season.
