Dodgers Officially Trade Kenta Maeda to Twins for Brusdar Graterol and Luke Raley (Dodgers Nation)

Today the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Brusdar Graterol, outfielder Luke Raley, and a draft pick in exchange for right-handed pitcher Kenta Maeda and cash considerations, plus minor league catcher Jair Camargo.

Maeda leaves Los Angeles after spending 4 seasons with the club.  He receives a $1M assignment bonus in the trade. The Dodgers are also sending Jair Camargo, the Columbian-born catcher to Minnesota and $10M in the deal.

Graterol made his major league debut as a 20-year-old with the Minnesota Twins in 2019. Raley was drafted by the Dodgers in 2016 and was part of a trade with Minnesota in 2018 that brought Brian Dozier to Dodger Stadium. Additionally, LA will receive the 67th overall pick in the 2020 draft.

After completing a trade with Boston earlier in the day, the Dodgers 40-man roster currently stands at 42, so more moves are expected to be coming.
