In one of the least talked about trades today. The Seattle Mariners traded reliever, Brandon League, to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two minor leaguers; outfielder Leon Landry and pitcher Logan Bawcom. The deal went down late Monday night. League has been a viable relief option lately, not only for the Mariners, but for fantasy owners as well.  He did struggle this year as closer and as a result was replaced by Tom Wilhelmsen. In a Los Angeles Times report last night, it was noted by Dodgers general manager, Ned Colletti, that League could be a relief option in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings. A year removed from being an All-Star in 2011, League currently has a 3.63 ERA, with 9 saves, and 27 strikeouts in a little over 44 innings pitched this season.  A move to the Dodgers could rejuvenate his season and could serve as a sneaky pick-up in your league.
