Dodgers acquire Minor League pitcher Owens from Oakland

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers made a Minor League trade Saturday, acquiring left-handed pitcher Rudy Owens from Oakland. The Dodgers have not confirmed the acquisition.

Owens, 27, went 8-5 with a 4.33 ERA at Triple-A Oklahoma City last year while in the Houston organization.

Owens is the club's latest attempt to shore up starting pitching depth at Triple-A, after the unconfirmed signings of free agents Freddy Garcia and Scott Baker.
