Yankees acquire Olson, Torreyes from Dodgers

The Yankees acquired acquired left-hander Tyler Olson and infielder Ronald Torreyes in a Tuesday deal with the Dodgers, sending infielder Rob Segedin to Los Angeles.

The two newcomers filled out the 40-man roster for the Yankees, who still owe a player to be named or cash considerations to the Dodgers to complete the transaction.

Olson, 26, had been designated for assignment last Wednesday by the Dodgers, who had acquired him in mid-December from Seattle, where in 2015 he had made his Major League debut. Olson went 1-1 in 11 relief appearances with the Mariners after posting a 4.47 ERA in 25 games, including six starts, with Triple-A Tacoma.

Torreyes, primarily a middle infielder (511 of 612 Minor League games at shortstop or second base), appeared in eight games in '15 with the Dodgers. Otherwise, the 23-year-old Venezuelan was a vagabond last season, moving about the Double-A and Triple-A levels of three different organizations (Blue Jays, Astros, Dodgers).

Segedin, a third-round pick in the 2010 Draft, batted .287 last season between Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Double-A Trenton.
