PLUTKO PLUCKED BY BALTIMORE

The Baltimore Orioles acquired pitcher Adam Plutko from the Cleveland Indians for cash.

What does it give the Baltimore Orioles
Plutko is a 29-year-old right-hander who has both started and relieved in Major League Baseball, so he gives Baltimore options. He is a decent addition to a pitching staff that needs a lot of help.

What does it give the Cleveland Indians
Cleveland decided to sell Plutko to the Orioles because they felt comfortable with their pitching staff heading into 2021. He mostly struggled in the bigs, which is another reason for moving on from him.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as Plutko will likely be a swingman for Baltimore this season.
