Dodgers acquire righty Baker from Brewers

MLB.com @mi_guardado

The Dodgers announced Tuesday that they have acquired right-hander Dylan Baker from the Brewers in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named.

Baker has logged a 3.58 ERA in 65 career appearances in the Minors, including 48 starts, though he's been limited to 21 2/3 innings over the last three years due to a series of injuries. The 25-year-old has not pitched above the Double-A level.

The Dodgers announced Tuesday that they have acquired right-hander Dylan Baker from the Brewers in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named.

Baker has logged a 3.58 ERA in 65 career appearances in the Minors, including 48 starts, though he's been limited to 21 2/3 innings over the last three years due to a series of injuries. The 25-year-old has not pitched above the Double-A level.

A fifth-round selection of the Indians in the 2012 Draft out of Western Nevada College, Baker missed most of the '14 season after suffering a broken fibula when he was hit by a comebacker during Spring Training. He made only one start in '15 before undergoing Tommy John surgery, which sidelined him for two years.

Baker returned to the mound in 2017 and made 17 appearances (two starts) between rookie ball and Double-A Akron, posting a 2.70 ERA over 16 2/3 innings and switching from starting to relieving. He was designated for assignment by the Indians in November and was claimed by the Brewers a week later.

With the acquisition of Baker, the Dodgers now have 40 players on their 40-man roster.
