Orioles Acquire Steven Lerud

Bob Dutton tweets that the Royals have traded minor league catcher Steven Lerud to the Orioles for a player to be named later.

Lerud, 24, was a third-round draft pick of the Pirates in 2003 and posted a line of .240/.339/.336 in 95 games for the Pirates' AA affiliate in Altoona last season. The Royals signed him as a minor league free agent back in December. Over six minor league seasons, Lerud owns a line of .228/.314/.363.

    Altoona is the Pirates AA affiliate, not the Royals.

    I thought we already had enough AAA filler catchers.

    Nice move Royals. Sign a player, don’t pay him a cent, then trade him for something.
