Phillies have traded RHP Roberto Hernandez to the Dodgers for two players to be named later.
The Dodgers picked up Hernandez to add an arm to the back end of the rotation, where Dan Haren is floundering. Hernandez has pitched well since the All-Star break, with two wins against zero losses and a 2.18 ERA in 20.2 innings pitchedANALYST:
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
