The Dodgers traded pitcher Brian Mazone to the Phillies for future considerations, according to the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Mazone, 32, went 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA in 13 appearances for Albuquerque, going on the disabled list twice. The left-hander had impressed during the spring and was one of the final cuts for the Dodgers.
Mazone, who pitched the previous three seasons in the the Philadelphia organization, was oh so close to being called up by the Phillies in 2006. Even if he never gets a shot, he can always say, “Yeah, but how many Joliet Jackhammer bobbleheads exist of you?”
UPDATE: The Dodgers received cash considerations, according to The Morning Call.
