LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers have traded reliever Chris Hatcher to Oakland for international amateur signing bonus pool space.

The right-hander was 0-1 with a 4.66 ERA in 26 relief appearances this season. He last pitched for the Dodgers on June 22, allowing one run and one hit in 1 1/3 innings with one strikeout against the Mets.

''It gives Chris a new opportunity to pitch innings,'' Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. ''Just innings and opportunities for Hatch, they were going to be hard to come by.''

Hatcher missed 42 games with a thoracic inflammation this season. He was acquired by the Dodgers in 2015 from Miami, going 8-10 with a 4.64 ERA and four saves in 49 games with the team.

The deal was announced Tuesday.
