Rangers executive vice president of communications John Blake tweets that the club has traded pitcher Justin Germano to the Dodgers for “future considerations”. Germano will report to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Germano, 32, made two relief appearances in the majors for the Rangers this season, allowing seven runs on eight hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings. He spent the rest of his time with Triple-A Round Rock, posting a 4.51 ERA with an 82/22 K/BB ratio in 131 2/3 innings over 21 starts.
