The Baltimore Orioles acquired right-hander Shintaro Fujinami from the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday in trade for minor league left-hander Easton Lucas.

Fujinami, 29, is in his first main league season after taking part in for the Hanshin Tigers of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball from 2013-22.

In 34 appearances (seven begins) with the Athletics, Fujinami went 5-8 with an 8.57 ERA throughout 49 1/3 innings. He most not too long ago pitched in opposition to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, surrendering a success in a single inning of scoreless aid.

Lucas, 26, has but to make his big-league debut. In 21 aid appearances between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season, Lucas went 1-0 with a 2.93 ERA.

Oakland made the deal shortly after beating the Red Sox 6-5 on Wednesday to take two of three video games within the sequence.
