Orioles' Elio Prado: Traded to Baltimore

Prado and Noelberth Romero were traded from Boston to Baltimore on Saturday in exchange for Andrew Cashner.

Signed for $85,000 out of Venezuela last year, the 17-year-old Prado has been limited to Dominican Summer League action thus far, hitting .303/.400/.418 with nearly as many walks (20) as strikeouts (21). He's shown promise at a very low level but is still many years away from challenging for a big-league roster spot.
