Orioles | Francisco Rodriguez acquired

The Baltimore Orioles acquired RP Francisco Rodriguez from the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, July 23, in exchange for INF Nick Delmonico. Also, the Orioles moved OF Nolan Reimold (neck) to the 60-day disabled list in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Now that K-Rod is out of the picture in Milwaukee, we expect Jim Henderson to jump back into the closer's role, but there's also a chance that John Axford works his way back into consideration eventually. Own both in deep mixed leagues if you're speculating for saves. In Baltimore, K-Rod will be put into setup duties for Jim Johnson, so he'll lose his value as a closer.

Delmonico, 21, has the skills to hit for a decent average and nice pop at the major league level, but he may be several years away from a starting role in Milwaukee.
