Orioles acquire star pitcher Corbin Burnes from Brewers

The longtime owners of the Baltimore Orioles agreed to sell the franchise Tuesday. Two days later, the club executed the type of blockbuster trade fans had long been clamoring for.

The Orioles acquired former Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes from the Brewers, the teams announced Thursday. Milwaukee will receive infielder Joey Ortiz, left-hander DL Hall and the No. 34 pick in the 2024 MLB Draft, ESPN reported.

Burnes, 29, posted a 3.39 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 200 strikeouts and a 127 ERA+ across 193.2 innings (32 starts) last season for the Brewers, with whom he spent the first six seasons of his MLB career. A free agent after 2024, Burnes previously indicated that he wouldn’t sign an extension with a new team if Milwaukee traded him. 

The Orioles went 101-61 last season, which netted the No. 1 seed in the American League and the AL East title, before being swept by the eventual World Series champion Texas Rangers in the ALDS.
