Earlier this evening, the Dodgers traded right-handed pitcher Matt Magill to Cincinnati for outfielder Chris Heisey.

As Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. notes, the nearly 30-year-old Heisey brings an above-average glove to Los Angeles, a little bit of power and two minor-league options. Magill, who talked about his ups and downs in November, had a 5.21 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 84 2/3 innings with Triple-A Albuquerque this year while allowing 80 hits and 59 walks.

Magill’s best game with the Dodgers was his first, on April 27, 2013, when he held Milwaukee to two runs over 6 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts.

    Moves like this is what makes baseball hard for me to understand.

    • Thankfully he has an option left, or it would make no sense. However, some other shoe will probably drop that makes this even more sensible.
