Dodgers trade Ruiz, extend offers to Jansen, Turner

first_imgThe Dodgers have officially acquired left-hander Vidal Nuno from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for catcher Carlos Ruiz.The trade was confirmed by both teams Monday afternoon.In addition, the Dodgers also confirmed that they have extended qualifying offers to two of their free agents — closer Kenley Jansen and third baseman Justin Turner. The two have one week to either accept or decline the qualifying offer, which is a one-year contract for $17.2 million.Given their high value on the free agent market, Jansen and Turner are expected to decline the qualifying offer. The Dodgers would receive a draft pick as compensation if either signs with another team this winter. In Nuno, the Dodgers acquire a 29-year-old left-hander who has pitched as a starter and reliever in parts of four big-league seasons with three teams — the New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and Mariners — going 5-20 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.Last season, Nuno pitched almost exclusively in relief for the Mariners, posting a 3.53 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 55 games, including one start. He was not particularly effective against left-handed batters, allowing a .293 batting average and three home runs in 90 plate appearances by left-handers against him. But over his career, he has held lefties to a .224 average and .641 OPS.Nuno figures to compete for a spot in the Dodgers’ bullpen next spring along with fellow left-handers Grant Dayton, Luis Avilan, Adam Liberatore (who underwent elbow surgery in October) and possibly Alex Wood if he is not used as a starter.Nuno is arbitration eligible this winter.
