LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers have traded reliever Chris Hatcher to Oakland for international amateur signing bonus pool space.
The right-hander was 0-1 with a 4.66 ERA in 26 relief appearances this season. He last pitched for the Dodgers on June 22, allowing one run and one hit in 1 1/3 innings with one strikeout against the Mets.
“It gives Chris a new opportunity to pitch innings,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Just innings and opportunities for Hatch, they were going to be hard to come by.”
Hatcher missed 42 games with a thoracic inflammation this season. He was acquired by the Dodgers in 2015 from Miami, going 8-10 with a 4.64 ERA and four saves in 49 games with the team.
The deal was announced Tuesday.
