Friday Bird Droppings: Comings and goings for the Orioles

The Blue Jays keep digging themselves into a hole this year and the Orioles are more than happy to supply the shovels. The Jays have now lost six straight and are 1-8. Seems like 2016 was years ago. In case you missed it, in separate moves last night, the Orioles acquired pitcher Damien Magnifico from the Brewers for an international bonus slot (for more on the O's on international signings, see here) and sent Oliver Drake to the Brewers for a PTBNL or cash.
