Rays acquired LHP Xavier Cedeno from the Dodgers for cash considerations.
It's been a wacky couple of weeks for Cedeno, who was designated for assignment by the Nationals on April 14, traded to the Dodgers on April 22, and then DFA'd by Los Angeles on April 24. Now he heads to Tampa Bay, where he'll presumably slide into a lefty specialist role. The 28-year-old left-hander has a 5.24 career ERA in 55 major league innings. Apr 27 - 1:22 PM
