The Dodgers have spent the last year trying to build a stable bullpen, went out and acquired a relief pitcher Thursday that new boss Andrew Friedman knows well.
Joel Peralta, the veteran right-hander, is joining the Dodgers after being shipped across the country in a four-player trade with the Rays. Peralta, had a 4.41 E.R.A. in 63 innings. Also coming to L.A. is Adam Liberatore, a left-handed pitcher who hasn’t pitched in the big leagues yet, but had a 1.66 ERA in Triple-A last season, striking out 86 in 65 innings.
