The Boston Red Sox made a move to shore up their rotation Saturday, trading two minor leaguers to the Baltimore Orioles for right-hander Andrew Cashner and cash considerations. Cashner is 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts this season. The 32-year-old right-hander has been on a roll, allowing just five earned runs in his past five starts, spanning 32 innings. He is holding left-handers to a .182 average and one home run in 193 plate appearances.

The Red Sox announced he will start Tuesday against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. He slots into Boston's problematic fifth spot in the rotation behind Chris Sale, David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Rick Porcello. Starter Nathan Eovaldi is expected to return in about a week, according to general manager Dave Dombrowski, but he will join the back end of the bullpen after being out since April 17 because of surgery to remove loose bodies from his pitching elbow.

Cashner has a career record of 55-82 with a 4.00 ERA in 10 seasons in the majors. A 2008 first-round pick of the Chicago Cubs, he has pitched for the Cubs (2010-11), the San Diego Padres (2012-2016), the Miami Marlins (2016), the Texas Rangers (2017) and the Orioles (2018-19). Cashner is set to be a free agent after this season, although he does have a $10 million team option that will automatically vest for 2020 if he throws 187 innings this season. He is sitting at 96 1/3 innings.

The Orioles received two 17-year-olds in the trade -- infielder Noelberth Romero and outfielder Elio Prado, both of whom made their professional debut this season in the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League. Romero was hitting .264 with two home runs in 29 games. Prado was batting. 303 with three home runs and nine stolen bases in 33 games.
