The Los Angeles Dodgers have landed Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish, a move that will bolster the Dodgers rotation and provide Darvish a much-needed change of scenery.
It was not immediately known what the Rangers would receive in return for Darvish.
In addition to Darvish, the Dodgers added depth to their bullpen by working out deals for Tony Cingrani and Tony Watson from Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.
The Darvish deal was first reported by Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and later confirmed by ESPN.
Darvish is 6-9 with a 4.01 ERA his season, his worst in five years in the majors.
