Dodgers acquire Adam McCreery

The Los Angeles Dodgers today acquired left-handed pitcher Adam McCreery from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for cash considerations.  

McCreery, 25, made one appearance with the Braves last season, making his Major League debut on Aug. 9 at Washington. The Southern California native split the majority of the year at Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Gwinnett, where he combined to go 2-5 with a 3.62 ERA (22 ER/54.2 IP) in 42 games. The 6-foot-9 southpaw also struck out 71 batters in 54.2 innings while limiting hitters to a .242 average.

McCreery was originally selected by the Angels in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft and has gone 8-10 with nine saves and a 3.42 ERA in 133 relief appearances for six different teams in the Angels and Braves' organizations. In his five-year Minor League career, McCreery has struck out 243 batters in 189.2 innings pitched.    

To create room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated relief pitcher Pat Venditte for assignment.
