Craig Kimbrel traded to Dodgers for A.J. Pollock

USA Today

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel from the Chicago White Sox for outfielder A.J. Pollock.

The Dodgers won’t stop making moves, as they signed Freddie Freeman to a $`162M contract and now traded for Kimbrel.

Kimbrel, now 33-years-old, could likely slide into the Dodgers immediate closer position for the 2020 World Series winners.

Pollock also strengthens Chicago’s lineup, and he posted a strong .297 batting average last season in LA accumulating 21 homers, 69 RBI, and 53 runs.

Kimbrel will earn $16 million in 2022 before becoming a free agent, while Pollock will earn $10 million this year with a $10 million player option for 2023.
