Right-hander Roberto Hernandez has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for two players to be named later, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today.
Hernandez, 33, went 6-8 with a 3.87 ERA in 23 games (20 starts) for the Phillies this year and is tied for the team lead in wins. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies selected the contract of right-hander Sean O'Sullivan from triple-A Lehigh Valley. O'Sullivan was 5-9 with a 4.57 ERA in 21 starts for Lehigh Valley and also made one start for the Phillies this year in June.
Tonight's starting pitcher is yet to be determined.
