Aug. 31, 2016: OF Jason Heinrich to Diamondbacks for OF Michael Bourn

Grade: A

This one was minor, but successful. The veteran Bourn improved the Orioles’ defense and speed down the stretch in 2016, providing a solid glove in right field that allowed the club to move Mark Trumbo to full-time DH. Bourn also swung the bat better than expected, collecting a .283 average, .793 OPS, two homers and eight RBIs. All for the piddling cost of Heinrich, a non-prospect who played just one minor league game in the Arizona organization and then was released. (Heinrich re-signed with the Orioles this year but was released June 21.)
