Dodgers Option Shawn Tolleson After Hanley Ramirez Trade

The Los Angeles Dodgers made their first foray into the trade market on Wednesday, adding Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate from the Miami Marlins. Both arrived in time for Wednesday's game with the St. Louis Cardinals, necessitating a roster move.

The Dodgers traded pitcher Nathan Eovaldi in the deal to get Ramirez and Choate, so that opened up one spot on the active roster. The other spot was created by optioning relief pitcher Shawn Tolleson to Triple A Albuquerque.

Tolleson had a 5.40 ERA in 11 appearances with the Dodgers, but he had improved in July with a 3.86 ERA in six appearances with seven strikeouts in seven innings. Tolleson retired 15 batters in a row at one point.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Choate, the Dodgers transferred reliever Todd Coffey to the 60-day disabled list. Coffey is out for the season after tearing the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow that required Tommy John surgery.
