The Orioles netted another high-minors pitcher in a trade for international signing bonus slot money Tuesday, acquiring right-hander Konner Wade from the Colorado Rockies, according to an industry source. Wade spent the past two seasons with Double-A Hartford, bouncing between the rotation and the bullpen. He had a 4.28 ERA in 33 games (15 starts) in 2017, and on his career, is 29-35 with a 4.05 ERA in the minors.
The annual deadline to add players to the 40-man roster means different things to different clubs, but for a team as focused on fostering organizational depth as the Orioles, it's important for several reasons. They aren't one of the clubs with more players to protect from the Rule 5 draft than spots to protect them, but they are a team that covets its own talent and wants to ensure that anyone in its farm system with a major league future has it in Baltimore.
One-time top prospect Hunter Harvey was among the three minor leaguers the Orioles added to their 40-man roster Monday, protecting them from selection in next month's Rule 5 draft. Harvey, right-hander David Hess, and catcher Austin Wynns were the team's three additions by Monday's 8 p.m. deadline.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
