The official Major League Baseball website, reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees conducted a trade on December 12 (Korean time).
The Dodgers sent left-hander Victor Gonzalez and infielder Hobbit Vivas to the Yankees, and the Yankees gave infielder Trey Sweeney to the Dodgers.
This trade was made as a follow-up to the Dodgers’ free agent contract. The Dodgers, who re-signed Joe Kelly and agreed to a mega contract with Shohei Ohtani, needed a spot for them on the 40-man roster.
