Orioles | Jim Thome acquired

The Baltimore Orioles acquired DH Jim Thome from the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, June 30, in exchange for P Kyle Simon and C Gabriel Lino.

Fantasy Tip: Thome will have some fantasy value now in AL-only head-to-head formats, as he takes over as the primary DH for the Orioles. However, his value is a little less in rotisserie formats due to his low average. With regular at-bats, though, Thome's power numbers might make his average bearable.
