The Los Angeles Dodgers have made another transaction in the form of a trade. This time, the team has acquired right-handed pitcher Mike Bolsinger from the Arizona Diamonbacks. To receive Bolsinger the Dodgers gave up cash. As a corresponding move, Los Angeles designated left-handed pitcher Jarret Martin for assignment.

Earlier this month, the Diamondbacks traded for Jeremy Hellickson, this left the righty with no rotation spot. However, after Josh Beckett retired, the Dodgers are looking to improve their staff. Also, injuries did not help their cause last season.
The rookie began last season in Triple A. He started 16 games and fashioned a 3.93 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
The 26-year-old pitched in 10 games for the Diamondbacks and started nine of them. He pitched a total of 52.1 innings and obtained a 1-6 record with a 5.50 ERA. He owned a 1.586 WHIP, while striking out 48 hitters in the 2014 season.
