Dodgers get Kendrick, work to add Rollins
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Dodgers acquired second baseman Howie Kendrick from the Los Angeles Angels and were working to obtain shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies in a remake of their middle infield.
In a flurry of moves late Wednesday, the Dodgers dealt All-Star second baseman Dee Gordon, right-hander Dan Haren, infielder Miguel Rojas and a player to be named or cash to the Miami Marlins as part of a seven-player trade for left-hander Andrew Heaney, right-hander Chris Hatcher, infielder Kike Hernandez and catcher Austin Barnes.
Los Angeles then sent Heaney, considered one of baseball’s top pitching prospects, to the Angels for Kendrick.
The Dodgers were not yet ready to finalize a trade with the Phillies for Rollins.
