The Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday traded left-handed starting pitcher Dana Eveland to the Baltimore Orioles for a pair of minor leaguers, lefty pitcher Jarret Martin and outfielder Tyler Henson. Moving Eveland freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for Aaron Harang, whom the Dodgers signed to a two-year contract on Thursday morning.
Harang, 28, was a likely candidate to be non-tendered next week anyway, and that was before the Dodgers signed Harang and Chris Capuano, giving them five starting pitchers signed through 2013. Harang was 3-2 with a 3.03 in five starts in September for the Dodgers after making the Triple A All-Star team with the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Martin, 22, was 5-12 with a 4.96 ERA in 31 games, including 18 starts for Class A Delmarva in the South Atlantic League in 2011. He was an 18th round selection in the 2009 draft by Baltimore. Henson, who turns 24 on December 15, hit .247/.313/.321 in Triple A in 2011.
