Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman spoke Wednesday about pitcher Juan Jaime, who was acquired from the Braves along with three others players in a six-man deal earlier in the day and assigned to extended spring training, MLB.com reports. "He can really miss bats," Friedman said. "The limiting factor with him is the control. So we'll send him to Camelback and really attack the problem. If he can harness that even a little bit, we feel like we've added a really good player." Jaime has posted a 5.93 ERA and 19:13 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings with the Braves over two seasons. He has also walked nine batters in 5 1/3 innings in the minors this season after dishing out 36 walks in 41 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett in 2014.
The Dodgers have officially acquired third baseman Alberto Callaspo, pitcher Ian Thomas, pitcher Juan Jaime and pitcher Eric Stults from the Braves, the team announced on Wednesday. Callaspo, who originally rejected the deal, will be placed on the active roster. Thomas will be optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City while Jaime will go to extended spring training. Stults has been designated for assignment.
As part of the trade sending Braves infielder Alberto Callaspo to the Dodgers in exchange for Juan Uribe, the Braves will also send Eric Stults, Ian Thomas and Juan Jaime to the Dodgers, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Braves are reportedly expected to receive pitcher Chris Withrow in the deal as well, reports FoxSports.
Braves pitcher Juan Jaime , designated for assignment a week ago, cleared waivers on Friday and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett. Jaime was 0-1 in two relief appearances this season, with a 6.75 ERA.
The Braves selected the contract of pitcher Sugar Ray Marimon Monday and designated pitcher Juan Jaime for assignment. Marimon tossed three scoreless innings in his only appearance with Triple-A Gwinnett before the move was made. He's expected to be used in long relief in Atlanta. Marimon went 5-4 with a 3.58 ERA in 15 starts with Triple-A Omaha last season. Jaime surrendered one earned run on no hits and four walks in 1 1/3 innings over two appearances before being removed from the active roster.
