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.
