Robert Andino Traded

In a trade of out of options players, Robert Andino is now with the Orioles.

The Orioles traded former top pitching prospect Hayden Penn to the Florida Marlins on Wednesday for utility infielder Robert Andino.

Penn, a 24-year-old right-hander who made his major league debut in 2005 as a 20-year-old, wasn't going to make the Orioles' roster and he was out of options, facilitating the trade. Given an opportunity to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster this spring, Penn went 0-3 with a 10.05 ERA, allowing 27 hits and walking six in 17 innings.

There will be a new rock-paper-scissors champion on the Marlins team.

I like Andino and I hope the Orioles will give him more of a shot than the Marlins ever did.  And honestly, that wouldn't be hard.

I haven't had a chance to lookup Penn (I don't follow the Orioles very closely, to not at all) so maybe one of you can enlighten us.
