NEW YORK — The Baltimore Orioles have acquired right-hander Preston Guilmet from the Cleveland Indians for outfielder Torsten Boss in an exchange of minor leaguers.
The Orioles announced the deal today during their game against the New York Yankees. Gimlet was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.
Nolan Reimold was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Guilmet on the 40-man roster. Reimold is recovering from cervical spine fusion surgery.
The 26-year-old Guilmet has a 2.57 ERA and 90 saves in 196 minor league games. He had a 1.68 ERA and 20 saves for Triple-A Columbus last year.
