ESPN.com is reporting that the Dodgers have dealt Wilson Bentiment to the Yankees for reliever Scott Proctor. The Dodgers have been looking for bullpen help and apparently they believe Proctor will be just that. Bentiment was only batting .230 with the Dodgers but provided some pop and still has some upside. Plus, he can play about a million positions so he might be viewed as ARod’s replacement if/when he opts out at the end of the year.
Sorry I’m a bit behind on the rest of the rumors and trades. I’ll try to catch up as the day progresses.
