The Los Angeles Dodgers made their third trade in the month of August in another move that has bolstered their pitching. In exchange for future considerations, the Dodgers acquired Justin Germano from the Texas Rangers.
The Pasadena native has been in and out of the Majors for nine seasons and the Dodgers will be his ninth team. The 32 year old was with the Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate for most of the 2014 season and in 21 starts, went 4-13 with a 4.51 ERA.
The right-handed pitcher was designated for assignment by the Rangers and joined their Triple-A affiliate after clearing waivers. The Dodgers assigned Germano to Triple-A Albuquerque, who recently lost Stephen Fife for the season.
The former 13th round pick pitched in two games for the Rangers this season and collected a 11.81 ERA. In nine seasons, the eight-year veteran has compiled a 10-30 record and 5.40 ERA.
