Dodgers Acquire Dessens

There will be more on this to come, but I wanted to break the news here that we've re-acquired Elmer Dessens in exchange for Odalis Perez, Single-A right-handers Blake Johnson and Julio Pimentel and cash considerations.

Thanks for lfinding the link......Perez is an original ATL draftee and I am sure that played into trading for him.

Wow.. it makes Dessens seem like he's actually worth something... great trade for the Royals.

From Rotoworld
Dodgers acquired RHP Elmer Dessens from the Royals for LHP Odalis Perez, RHP Blake Johnson, RHP Julio Pimentel and cash considerations.
The Royals must be inheriting a significant chunk of Perez's contract, because they're also getting two solid prospects here in return for a middle reliever. Dessens, in the first year of a two-year, $3.4 million contract, had a 4.50 ERA in 54 innings for the Royals. He should upgrade the Dodger bullpen, but it's not like he's a huge asset. He had a 3.56 ERA in 65 2/3 innings for the Dodgers last season.

That's what I was thinking. But considering how much they just wanted to get rid of the disruptive influence (no love lost), I'm guessing this was the best they could do. But Odalis has flat out stunk this year.

I have been impressed with Colleti so far but this one has me scratching my head. Elmer come on he can't even hit a rabbit with a riffle how's he gonna throw strikes.

Whoa, great trade for KC.

Funny how KC just aquired their new "ace" :).
