Major League Baseball trades: Dodgers acquire Brian Dozier

Brian Dozier

Back in the majors to start 2013, Dozier continued a progression that saw him increase his home run total in four straight seasons, capped by a 42-homer year in 2016 in which he broke Alfonso Soriano's 14-year-old record for most homers by an American League second baseman.

This season in 70 games the second baseman is hitting.207/.270/.290.

The playoff-hopeful Brewers sent second baseman Jonathan Villar, along with two prospects to Baltimore.

Turner let the social media world know that there was no intent behind him moving away, as he only meant to give one of the coaches room to greet Dozier.

Miami Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin has been traded to the Seattle Mariners for minor league infielder Bryson Brigman and global slot money.

Ramos is batting.297 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs but is now on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Maybin is batting.251 with three homers and 20 RBIs in 99 games this season, but he's batting.329 with a.912 OPS since June 29.

Ziegler, 38, is 1-5 with a 3.98 ERA this season.

Chase Anderson has a 1.93 ERA over his last seven starts, allowing two runs or fewer in each outing.

Having been previously outrighted to the minor leagues in 2015, Austin would have the right to elect free agency should the Twins try to slip him through waivers again. He's a native of the Miami area. The trade was the fifth the Twins had made in a span of four days, a series of moves in which they jettisoned five current major leaguers off their 25-man roster.

Dowdy, 25, is 8-8 with a 4.74 ERA between Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo this season.

Cleveland also received right-hander Kyle Dowdy in the deal for shortstop prospect Willi Castro. He missed time in July with a strained hamstring.

The Minnesota Twins clearly declared themselves as a trade deadline seller, and their final move may be the biggest one. Smeltzer, who has a 4.73 earned run average in 84 innings, is a deceptive sidewinder whose nine-inning strikeout rate is 9.1 for his career.

The 30-year-old Pham has been a member of the Cardinals' organization since being drafted in 2006.
