Dodgers trade pitcher Dana Eveland to Orioles

December 8, 2011 |  9:09 am

Dana1The Dodgers made a minor trade on Thursday before leaving the winter meetings, sending non-tender candidate Dana Eveland to the Baltimore Orioles for a couple of minor leaguers.

The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Aaron Harang, whose two-year, $12-million deal is scheduled to be announced later in the day.

In exchange for Eveland, the Dodgers received 22-year-old left-hander Jarret Martin and 23-year-old outfielder Tyler Henson.

Martin was 5-12 with a 4.96 earned-run average for Class-A Delmarva last season. He was an 18th-round draft pick in the 2009 draft.

Henson, who turns 24 next week, hit .247 with three home runs and 36 runs batted in for Triple-A Norfolk last season. He was a Double-A all-star in 2010 and a Class-A all-star in 2007. He was a fifth-round pick in the 2006 draft.
