Dodgers Trade Carlos Frias to Indians for PTBNL or Cash
After being designated for assignment, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded right-hander Carlos Frias to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Frias became the odd man out on the 40-man roster when the Dodgers acquired outfielder Brett Eibner from the Oakland Athletics. The 27-year-old pitched in just one game for the team in 2016, going the final four innings in a July loss to the San Diego Padres. He dealt with multiple injuries that caused him to participate in just 11 games total (10 in the minors).
With an abundance of arms on the roster, Frias became expendable after being with the team since 2007. He ends his career with a 6-6 record, 4.50 ERA, 4.05 FIP, 1.377 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 33 games (15 starts).
