Dodgers acquire pitcher Joe Gunkel from Baltimore

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers have acquired pitcher Joe Gunkel from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a player to be named later or cash consideration.

Gunkel has a 28-25 career record with a 3.30 ERA over four pro seasons with Boston and Baltimore.

Last season, the 25-year-old right-hander pitched for Baltimore's Triple-A Norfolk and Double-A Bowie clubs, with a combined 8-14 record and a 4.02 ERA in 28 starts.

Gunkel was designated for assignment by the Orioles on April 7. He was originally selected by the Red Sox in the 18th round of the 2013 draft.

The deal was announced Monday.
