On a day full of transactions for the Dodgers, perhaps one of those transactions remained entirely under the radar.
#Dodgers have traded OF Paulo Orlando to the White Sox, presumably for cash considerations or the like. Orlando was a non-roster invitee to big-league camp this spring. Hit .211 with 2 HRs in 24 games at Triple-A OKC

Back Full Circle
Paulo Orlando was originally signed by the Chicago White Sox organization back in 2005. He was rated highly then by scouts for his speed on the base paths, and his speed in the outfield. He was traded to Kansas City in 2008, and made the 40 man roster in 2015. The Royals won the world series that year, which means he has a world series ring on his mantle. His best year was 2016 where he hit .302 in 128 games. He struggled with consistency at the plate every year since then.
This move for the White Sox is likely just to add to their organizational depth. Subsequently for the Dodgers, getting cash considerations for a player like Paulo Orlando is a good deal. It also frees up a Triple A roster spot for some prospects from Double A to get some better experience.
