The Baltimore Orioles made some minor moves in the weeks leading up to the trade deadline, but opted to remain pat on Tuesday.
One move brought 30-year-old infielder Omar Quintanilla over from the Mets in an effort to add some depth at second base.
He's hitting .406 in his first 11 games with the team, but that doesn't mean Orioles fans should get their hopes up.
Quintanilla is a career .228 hitter and has spent the past six years fluctuating between the majors and minors, never staying in the big leagues for more than half of a season.
At the start of July, the team also acquired slugger Jim Thome from the Phillies to add a bit of pop to the DH slot.
He is hitting .266 with 2 HR and 6 RBI since joining the team, but was placed on the 15-Day DL on Tuesday with a herniated disc in his back.
The Orioles are sitting in second place in the AL East, just 5.5 games behind the New York Yankees.
It's a much closer race for the O's in the Wild Card, where they currently sit just 1.5 games behind the Angels and Athletics.
Being so close to contention, it's hard to believe that the team did not make an attempt to add some depth to their rotation, especially after the injury to Jason Hammel.
It remains to be seen if this Orioles squad can stay in the playoff hunt in the highly competitive American League.
