Dodgers trade Claudio Vargas to Brewers for minor-league catcher (Dodger Thoughts)
So long, Claudio Vargas, we hardly knew ye. Is this a setup for a future trade?
From a Dodgers press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced that they have acquired minor league catcher Vinny Rottino from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for right-handed pitcher Claudio Vargas. Dodger General Manager Ned Colletti made the announcement.
Rottino, 29, has appeared briefly in the Major Leagues for Milwaukee in each of the past three seasons and was named to the Pacific Coast League All-Star team last season when he posted a 24-game hitting streak. The Wisconsin native has made the PCL All-Star team each of the past three years and has been named to his league’s All-Star team in each season dating back to 2004 when he recorded a team record 124 RBI for Single-A Beloit.

Rottino is expected to report to Double-A Chattanooga.
