Rangers executive vice president of communications John Blake tweets that the club has traded pitcher Justin Germano to the Dodgers for “future considerations”. Germano will report to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Germano, 32, made two relief appearances in the majors for the Rangers this season, allowing seven runs on eight hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. He spent the rest of his time with Triple-A Round Rock, posting a 4.51 ERA with an 82/22 K/BB ratio in 131 2/3 innings over 21 starts.
Germano has been in professional baseball for 14 seasons, spending parts of nine of them in the big leagues. He was drafted by the Padres in the 13th round of the 2000 draft and has since joined the Reds, Phillies, Indians, Red Sox, Cubs, Blue Jays, and Rangers.
