Busy Dodgers make another deal, acquiring Octavio Dotel from Pirates for McDonald
SAN FRANCISCO – The Los Angeles have acquired reliever Octavio Dotel from the Pittsburgh Pirates for right-hander James McDonald and minor league outfielder Andrew Lambo.
The Dodgers made two deals Saturday. They earlier got left-handed starter Ted Lilly and infielder Ryan Theriot from the Chicago Cubs for infielder Blake DeWitt and two minor league pitchers.
The well-traveled Dotel was 2-2 with a 4.28 ERA in 41 relief outings and 40 innings this year for the Pirates.
McDonald is 0-1 with an 8.22 ERA in four games and one start this year.
