Dodgers News: Alex Castellanos Dealt To Red Sox For Jeremy Hazelbaker

Last week, the Dodgers claimed outfielder Mike Baxter from the Mets and designated outfielder Alex Castellanos for assignment. Baxter played in only 74 games and hit .189 with just four RBIs in his time with the Mets.

Meanwhile, Castellanos had a cup of coffee with the Dodgers this season as he hit .167 with one home run and two RBIs in just eight games. However, with Game 1 of the World Series just hours away, the Dodgers and Red Sox completed a trade surrounding Castellanos according to Mark Saxson of ESPNLA.com:

In 121 games with Triple A Pawtucket, Hazelbaker hit .257 with 11 home runs and 54 RBI and he also stole 37 bases in 44 attempts. Hazelbaker was ranked the Red Sox number 22 prospect after the 2010 season according to Baseball America and was voted the fastest baserunner in the South Atlantic League.

Hazelbaker was drafted in the fourth round by the Red Sox out of Ball State University and spent most of his time in the outfield or DHing this season.

It’d be assumed that Hazelbaker will start next season with Triple A Albequerque and Castellanos with Triple A Pawtucket as the Dodgers continue to tinker with the 40-man roster.
