The Orioles continued to shed talent from their major league roster Sunday, sending right-handed reliever Mychal Givens to the Colorado Rockies in their second trade on the last full day before the trade deadline.
The Orioles acquired prospects Tyler Nevin and Terrin Vavra plus a player to be named later, the team announced. Nevin, 23, a first-round pick (38th overall) by the Rockies in 2015 and the son of former major leaguer Phil Nevin, has a career .286/.362/.441 in five minor league seasons playing first base, third base and left field.
Vavra, 23, was the Rockies’ third-round pick in 2018 out of Minnesota and has hit .313/.405/.483 in 146 games across the Short-A Northwest and Low-A South Atlantic leagues. The infielder is ranked the Rockies’ No. 7 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, while Nevin is ranked No. 14.
The Orioles’ second-round pick in 2009 as a shortstop, Givens converted to pitching and made it to the majors in late 2015 to join an Orioles bullpen that was one of the game’s best with Zack Britton, Darren O’Day and Brad Brach already established at the back end.
