The Dodgers have acquired right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez from the Toronto Blue Jays. Chavez, 32, has made 39 appearances out of the bullpen this season, going 1-2 with a 4.57 earned-run average.

The Dodgers are sending right-hander Mike Bolsinger to the Blue Jays. Toronto also sent cash considerations to the Dodgers. Chavez is owed $4 million this season, while Bolsinger was owed $515,000, close to the major league minimum.

Earlier Monday, the Dodgers acquired Rich Hill and Josh Reddick from the Oakland A’s for Frankie Montas, Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes.

Chavez is an alumnus of Miller High School in Fontana and Riverside City College.
