Dodgers Acquire Sherrill
The Dodgers shored up their bullpen Thursday by acquiring Baltimore closer George Sherrill in exchange for two prospects, slugging third baseman Josh Bell and riht-handed pitcher Steve Johnson, according to baseball sources.
The left-handed Sherrill can serve as a set-up man, or share closer roles with Jonathan Broxton.
The Dodgers still are hoping to acquire a starting pitcher and are rumored to still be pursuing Toronto’s Roy Halladay in exchange for a package of prospects. — Ken Gurnick
