BOSTON  The Red Sox filled a big need with 18 days to spare before the July 31 Trade Deadline, acquiring righty starter Andrew Cashner from the Orioles in exchange for Minor League infielder Noelberth Romero and Minor League outfielder Elio Prado on Saturday.

Cashner will report to the Red Sox on Sunday and make his first start on Tuesday against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park, president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said on Saturday.

The fifth spot in the rotation has been a weakness for the Red Sox since Nate Eovaldi went down in mid-April with a right elbow injury.

With the recent news that Eovaldi will pitch out of the bullpen in his return, Dombrowski focused on getting a starter to back his front four of Chris Sale, David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez and Rick Porcello.

Cashner, 32, was 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts for the Orioles this season. He completed at least seven innings in both of his last two starts and at least six innings in each of his last five, posting a 1.41 ERA since the start of June. On the season, Cashner has held left-handed hitters to a .182 batting average, a .499 OPS and only one home run.

Romero, 17, made his professional debut this season with the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League Red Sox2. The right-handed hitter has appeared in 29 games, making 22 starts at third base, five at second base and two at shortstop. He has batted .264 (29-for-110) with two home runs, drawing 11 walks against 20 strikeouts.

Prado, 17, also made his professional debut this season with the DSL Red Sox2, batting .303 (37-for-122) with three home runs in 33 games. He has made 18 starts in center field, seven in right field and six in left field. The right-handed hitter has scored 26 runs with 26 RBIs, adding nine stolen bases with 20 walks and 21 strikeouts.
