Dodgers get Jesse Chavez from Blue Jays

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired pitcher Jesse Chavez from the Toronto Blue Jays, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

What It Means:

It's not yet known what Toronto will receive in return. Chavez, 32 years-old, owns a 4.57 ERA and a 24.28 strikeout percentage (league average is 21.00 percent) in 41 1/3 innings this season. He's only appeared out of the bullpen this season, but has made 49 starts in his career.

Chavez owns a 3.85 xFIP this season, significantly lower than his ERA. Our models project him to record a 3.91 ERA and a 21.28 strikeout percentage over the rest of the year. The Dodgers currently have the eighth-best team bullpen xFIP (3.93) this season.
