Blue Jays trade Jesse Chavez to the Dodgers

The Dodgers have acquired righty Jesse Chavez from the Blue Jays in exchange for righty Mike Bolsinger.

Chavez has a 4.39 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 42/10 in 41.1 innings of work across 39 games for Toronto this year. Bolsinger has a 6.83 ERA in six starts for the Dodgers. He’s been more effective as a swingman for Oklahoma City. He’ll serve as depth for the Jays.

I guess Scott Feldman, acquired by the Jays today from the Astros, makes Chavez redundant in Toronto. Feldman is certainly an improvement for Toronto and Chavez will help L.A. so win-win-win, I suppose.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
