On the last day players can come into the organization and be eligible for the postseason, the Dodgers have acquired minor-league outfielder Justin Ruggiano from the Mariners, along with cash considerations, in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Ruggiano, who was drafted by the Dodgers in the 25th round of the 2004 draft, has an .899 OPS for Triple-A Tacoma and .678 OPS in 36 games for Seattle.

On July 19, 2006, Ruggiano was the player to be named later in a trade that sent Dioner Navarro and Jae Seo to Tampa Bay (and Andrew Friedman) for Toby Hall, Mark Hendrickson and cash.
