Dodgers Trade Dotel To Rockies, Plus Other Pregame Notes

Before the game, Octavio Dotel switched clubhouses, as he was traded from the Dodgers to the Rockies for a player to be named later. He is available to pitch for Colorado today.

Dotel was 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in 18 2/3 innings for the Dodgers over 19 games, after being acquired from the Pirates on July 31 for James McDonald and Andrew Lambo. With the Dodgers, Dotel converted one of two save opportunities.

The Rockies are on the hook for $284,153, 16 days worth of Dotel’s $3.25 million salary. Since he was not in the Rockies’ organization on August 31, he is ineligible for the postseason.

Here are today’s lineups from Dodger Stadium. Be sure to watch at 4 p.m. on Prime Ticket, when the game is on tape delay.
