O’s Trading Trey Mancini to Houston

Trey Mancini gets ready to field.

As first reported by Dan Connolly of The Athletic, the Orioles and Houston Astros have agreed on a deal to send Birdland fan favorite Trey Mancini to Mike Elias’ former club.

It’s a bittersweet day for O’s fans. While Mancini gets to immediately join a contender, and we’ll almost certainly get to watch him play in October this year, it hurts. Despite the fact that he wasn’t going to be re-signed and would have been a free agent following the season, it hurts. Mancini was the longest-tenured Oriole, the 2021 Comeback Player of the Year in MLB after battling (and beating) colon cancer in 2020, and a fixture in the community and in our hearts. We’d hoped against hope that, when this thing finally turned around, Mancini would be part of the next great Orioles team. Unfortunately, the timing just didn’t quite work out.

Elias and Sig Mejdal know the Houston farm system well, and you’d expect that while they certainly aren’t going to fleece the Astros, that this will hopefully be a mutually beneficial trade in the end.

Mancini’s official final AB as an Oriole at Camden Yards (barring him ever returning of course) will now be the infamous “Little League home run” he hit off Josh Lowe’s face last Thursday.

This should open up the spot for Kyle Stowers that our own Ryan Blake was hoping would become available following a trade of another O’s outfielder/DH, Anthony Santander. We still have another day, but for now at least, Santander remains in orange and black.

Update: Apparently it’s a three-team deal.
