Dodgers acquire Peralta from Rays
The Dodgers and Rays completed a four-player trade Thursday night in advance of the reserve list deadline.
Tampa Bay sent veteran right-hander Joel Peralta and Minor League lefty Adam Liberatore to Los Angeles in exchange for right-handers Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.
In four seasons with the Rays from 2011-14, Peralta set club records with 296 appearances and 115 holds. He also led the Majors in appearances in that span. Last season, the 38-year-old reliever pitched in 69 games with a 4.41 ERA, his highest mark since 2009. He’s due $2.5 million next season, the first of three club options.
Dominguez, 24, made five appearances with the Dodgers in 2014 and went 1-2 with 10 saves and a 3.24 ERA with Triple-A Albuquerque.
The Rays added Dominguez and five others — pitchers Matt Andriese and Grayson Garvin, infielder Ryan Brett, outfielder Mikie Mahtook and catcher Justin O’Conner — to their 40-man roster and designated Cole Figueroa, Michael Kohn and Jose Molina for assignment.
Molina spent the last three years in Tampa Bay, playing in 281 games. The 39-year-old backstop made 70 starts at catcher in 2014 and hit .178/.230/.187.
