Tanner Roark was one of many players across MLB who was traded to another team before Wednesday's trade deadline.
The A's acquired Roark from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for prospect Jameson Hannah and cash considerations. And how did Roark find out he was heading to Oakland?
While he was ordering food at an Arby's, of course.
Tanner Roark learned of his trade in an @arbys parking lot. He wanted a beef and cheddar (and curly fries). He was driving to Atlanta, where he lives in the off-season. @JonHeyman approves. He will not be driving to Oakland— C. トレント・ローズクランズ (@ctrent) July 31, 2019
Arby's themselves responded to the news:
We don't have many restaurants in Oakland, so we hope he was able to finish his Beef 'n Cheddar before heading out.— Arby's (@Arbys) July 31, 2019
The 32-year-old righty has a 4.24 ERA with 108 strikeouts in 110.1 innings this season and boasts a 6-7 record as a member of the Reds.

We just really hope he got his food and was able to eat it peacefully. Well, as peacefully as he possibly can after hearing the news.
