Orioles Acquire David Freitas To Complete Jim Johnson Trade

The Orioles announced that they have acquired minor league catcher David Freitas from the Athletics as the player to be named later to complete the Jim Johnson trade.

Freitas, 24, was selected by the Nationals in the 15th round of the 2010 draft out of the University of Hawaii. He reached Triple-A for the first time in 2013 and posted a .231/.306/.368 batting line with 10 homers in 356 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A. Freitas was actually much better in Triple-A than in Double-A (in a smaller sample size), batting .268/.355/.381 in 110 plate appearances.

Prior to the 2012 season, Baseball America ranked him 27th among Nationals prospects, noting that he had good power to the pull side and a patient approach at the plate that gave him a chance to be an offensive-minded part-time catcher in the Majors.
