Phillies get pitching prospect from Dodgers to complete Joe Blanton deal

3 Comments

Joe Blanton was traded from the Phillies to the Dodgers two weeks ago for a player to be named later and … well, today is apparently later.

Philadelphia gets right-hander Ryan O’Sullivan, who was Los Angeles’ fourth-round pick in the 2011 draft out of Oklahoma State and has spent this season throwing 89 innings with a 3.05 ERA and 55/31 K/BB ratio between two levels of Single-A.

Blanton is an impending free agent with a 4.61 ERA, so a recently drafted but pretty marginal prospect seems like a fair return.
