The Baltimore Orioles are the only team former Notre Dame player trey mancini has known. An eighth-round pick in 2013 who made his major-league debut three years later, Mancini has become the face of the franchise while also surviving cancer. Now on the verge of free agency, he’ll have a shot at a World Series ring after he was traded to the Houston Astros in a three-team deal also involving the Tampa Bay Rays. Most of the rest of the trade involved a flurry of prospects.

In 92 games for the Orioles this season, Mancini has posted a slash line of .268/.347/.404 along with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs. He leaves a franchise that always finished at the bottom of the AL East in every full season he played. On the flip side, he joins an Astros team that is one of two favorites to win the AL pennant along with the New York Yankees. He likely doesn’t care that it’s the most hated franchise in baseball right now as long as it wins the last game of the season.
