Blue Jays acquire Bolsinger from Dodgers for Chavez, cash
TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired right-hander Mike Bolsinger from the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Jesse Chavez and $1.15 million.
The 28-year-old Bolsinger was 1-4 with a 6.83 ERA for the Dodgers this season. He's also spent some time in the minors in 2016. Bolsinger made 21 starts for Los Angeles last year, going 6-6 with a 3.62 ERA.
Chavez went 1-2 with a 4.57 ERA in 39 relief appearances for Toronto this season. He was a starter for Oakland the previous two years. The 32-year-old right-hander has 42 strikeouts in 41 1/3 innings in 2016.
The cash payment, due Sept. 1, is to offset part of Chavez's $4 million salary.
