The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez from the Philadelphia Phillies for two players to be named later or cash, the Dodgers announced Thursday. 

Hernandez is 6-8 with a 3.87 ERA in 121 innings this season. In his nine-year career, Hernandez has played for the Phillies, Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians, with whom he made the AL All-Star team in 2010. In 2007, he finished fourth in AL Cy Young voting after going 19-8 with a 3.06 ERA and 137 strikeouts in 215 innings.

Hernandez will join a Dodgers pitching staff that lost Paul Maholm to a torn ACL last week, but still features Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Josh Beckett and Dan Haren.
