In a move designed to add depth to their left-handed relief corps, the Dodgers acquired left-hander Colt Hynes
from the Cleveland Indians for minor-league pitcher Duke von Schamann
Hynes, 28, was assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque. To make room for Hynes on the 40-man roster, outfielder Mike Baxter was designated for assignment.
Baxter appeared in parts of four games with the Dodgers, going 0-for-7 with a walk, before being optioned to Albuquerque to make room for Matt Kemp on the active roster.
