In addition to Alberto Callaspo, the Dodgers will acquire Eric Stults, Ian Thomas, and Juan Jaime from the Braves in the trade that sends Juan Uribe and Chris Withrow to Atlanta.
The deal just needs to be approved by the commissioner's office before it's finalized, which should occur at some point on Wednesday. Stults gives the Dodgers a bit more rotation depth while they deal with injuries, but it's a deal that, as a whole, doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense for L.A.
Brett Lawrie (back) went 0-for-4 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.
Lawrie had missed the last three games with back tightness. The third baseman sports a pedestrian .272/.303/.355 batting line this season.
Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) drew an intentional walk as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.
Cabrera hasn't started the last two games due to a minor groin strain. He's expected back in the lineup soon.
Matt Shoemaker hurled seven scoreless innings but got a no-decision as the Angels lost 4-0 in 10 innings on Tuesday.
Shoemaker was locked in a pitcher's duel with opposing starter Odrisamer Despaigne. The right-hander allowed only four hits -- all singles -- along with a walk and six strikeouts. He's had a forgettable 2015 campaign, carrying a 5.44 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP and a 48/10 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings, but he has plenty of time to turn things around. He has allowed 13 home runs, a rate of more than two per nine innings, which is not something he is likely to sustain over the long haul. Shoemaker will take on the Tigers in a home start next.
Matt Joyce went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 10-inning loss to the Padres.
Joyce, despite getting almost all of his playing time this season against right-handed pitching, has struggled through the first two months. Tuesday's outing moves his triple-slash line down to .172/.246/.258. His struggles may prompt the Angels to acquire an outfielder leading up to the trade deadline in July.
Odrisamer Despaigne held the Angels scoreless over six innings of work but got a no-decision as the Padres won in 10 innings on Tuesday.
Despaigne scattered five hits -- all singles -- without issuing a walk and striking out five. The Angels only had a runner reach scoring position three times and they, obviously, failed each time. Despaigne's most recent two starts have been much better than his first two starts after rejoining the rotation in early May but he still carries a lackluster 5.23 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. Despaigne matches up against the Pirates at home in his next start.
Matt Kemp hit a bases-clearing double in the 10th inning to break a scoreless tie and send the Padres to a victory against the Angels on Tuesday.
Kemp made reliever Joe Smith pay for a single and two walks by clearing the bases with a double to left field. He scored not long after and finished the night 1-for-5. It marks his first multi-RBI game since April 29 as he has hit the skids offensively. Kemp is hitting .255/.291/.348 with only one home run and 25 RBI.
Joakim Soria held the Athletics scoreless in the ninth inning, earning his 14th save as the Tigers held on to win 1-0 on Tuesday.
Soria allowed a two-out double to Sam Fuld, but got Billy Burns to fly out to left field to end the game. It was the first time Soria had pitched since blowing the save against the Astros on May 21. He's 14-for-15 in save chances thus far with a 1.33 ERA and a 15/3 K/BB ratio in 20 innings.
