The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired reliever Corey Knebel from the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday for a player to be named or cash. Here are the highlights:
- Coming off their first World Series championship since 1988, the Dodgers also agreed with reliever Scott Alexander on a one-year deal for $1 million.
- The 29-year-old Knebel was an All-Star in 2017 and a key part of the Brewers’ bullpen during their run to the 2018 NL Championship Series.
- “Corey had a tremendous career as a Brewer,” Milwaukee president of baseball operations David Stearns said. “He pitched in some of the biggest games in the history of this franchise, and he pitched incredibly well in those games. … Corey’s meant a lot to this franchise. He’s earned the respect of a lot of people around the Brewers, and we wish him very well.”
