The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Curtis Granderson for a player to be named later or cash just two days ago.
It appears the Mets and Dodgers have come to a quick decision on who will be that player to be named later as the teams both announced that 24-year-old minor league right-handed pitcher, Jacob Rhame, has been sent to the Mets to complete the Curtis Granderson trade.
We've acquired RHP Jacob Rhame from Los Angeles (NL) as the player to be named later to complete the 8/18 trade involving Curtis Granderson.

Rhame was the Dodgers’ sixth-round draft pick back in 2013. He owns a minor league career 3.11 earned run average, with all of his 210 outings coming out of the bullpen. This season, he has spent the entirety of his playing time as a member of the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers’ bullpen, pitching to a rough 4.31 earned run average over the course of 48 innings pitched.
This move does not look like it will hurt the Dodgers at all, as Rhame might not have ever seen the Major League roster if he stayed in the organization.
