Andrew Friedman, Farhan Zaidi and company have made another trade; another minor one, that is.

The Dodgers traded recently DFA’d pitcher Carlos Frias to the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations, the team announced. Frias was designated for assignment after L.A. acquired outfielder Brett Eibner from Oakland.

Frias was an asset for the Dodgers two seasons ago, throwing 77.2 innings and becoming renown for his ability to keep the ball in the infield. Frias accumulated 13 starts and collected a 4.06 ERA in that time.

Still 27-years-old, Frias has a minor league option remaining, allowing Cleveland to demote him if he doesn’t win a spot in spring training. The Indians DFA’d Richie Shaffer to make room for Frias.

The Brewers owner admitted Ryan Braun was almost a Dodger
