DODGERS ACQUIRE JESSE CHAVEZ FROM BLUE JAYS

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today acquired right-handed reliever Jesse Chavez and cash considerations from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for right-hander Mike Bolsinger.

Chavez, 32, went 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA in 39 games with the Blue Jays this year, while limiting right-handed hitters to a .245 batting average and posting a 4.20 strikeout-to-walk ratio (42 SO/10 BB). In nine big-league seasons with the Pirates (2008-09), Braves (2010), Royals (2010-11), Blue Jays (2012, '16) and Athletics (2012-15), the San Gabriel, CA, native has gone 25-40 with two saves and a 4.55 ERA in 292 games (49 starts) after being selected by the Rangers in the 42nd round of the 2002 First-Year Player Draft out of Riverside Community College.

Bolsinger, 28, was 7-10 with a 4.27 ERA in 27 starts in two seasons with the Dodgers in 2015-16 after being acquired from the D-backs on Nov. 22, 2014.
