The Orioles have acquired outfielder Alejandro De Aza from the White Sox, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports. The White Sox will receive two minor league pitchers in return, Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar.

In 435 plate appearances this season, De Aza compiled a .246/.312/.358 slash line. The 30-year-old also added five home runs, 31 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.

Chalas, 22, skipped Double-A, earning a promotion from Single-A Frederick to Triple-A Norfolk recently. In 69 1/3 innings with Frederick, Chalas posted a 4.80 ERA with a 49/20 K/BB ratio.

Blackmar, also 22, has spent the entire season with Frederick. In 130 1/3 innings, the right-hander has a 3.18 ERA with an 83/32 K/BB ratio.

    Alejandro De Aza is still in the league?

    He’s actually been solid for the Sox the past few years. He was out of his mind last year…I think he hit 15 homers.

    I think that’s a great move for the white sox.

    Does these even warrant a headline? And yes, I am an os fan.

    He’ll platoon against right handed pitchers only. He can steal a base and play all three outfield spots if needed. Not a bad September playoff run pick up. Kelly Johnson on the other hand is a useless acquisition IMO.

    Duquette is infatuated with low profile players that few have ever heard of.
