Dodgers send Cuevas to Rockies to complete trade

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have sent minor-league outfielder Noel Cuevas to the Colorado Rockies to complete their trade for right-hander Juan Nicasio last month.

The clubs announced the rest of the deal Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Cuevas reached Double-A Chattanooga last season, batting .231 with seven homers and 44 RBIs.

The Dodgers acquired Nicasio on Nov. 24. He went 6-6 with a 5.38 ERA last season for the Rockies, making 14 starts before moving to the bullpen.
