The Dodgers acquired reliever Ryan Webb in a trade with the Orioles on Thursday and he has already been outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, citing MLB.com’s transactions page. As Webb has accrued five years of major league service time, he could have refused his assignment to Triple-A, but he accepted it on Sunday night, SB Nation’s Eric Stephen reports.
Webb, 29, has a career 3.38 ERA and a 229/109 K/BB ratio over 325 1/3 innings. He pitched for the Padres and Marlins before signing as a free agent with the Orioles in December 2013. Webb is owed $2.75 million for the 2015 season, which the Dodgers agreed to cover in the trade.
