Brewers trade Dylan Baker to the Dodgers

6 Comments

Hey, a minor trade! The first (arguable) news of the new year!

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired righty Dylan Baker from the Brewers for a player to be named later or cash considerations. In other news, it would be cool if the player was actually named Cash Considerations. Someone should change their name to that.

Baker was recently designated for assignment by Milwaukee. In November the Brewers claimed him off waivers, so Baker’s offseason has been pretty eventful. His regular season was less interesting, in that he tossed only 12.2 innings with the Indians’ Double-A affiliate while returning from Tommy John surgery.

The fifth rounder from the 2012 draft has a 3.58 ERA over 48 starts and 17 relief appearances across five minor league seasons.
