Dodgers acquire Minor League outfielder from Red Sox

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers traded outfielder Alex Castellanos to the Red Sox on Wednesday for Minor League outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker and cash, the club announced.

Hazelbaker, 26, hit .257 with 11 home runs, 54 RBIs and 37 stolen bases at Triple-A Pawtucket this year. He was a fourth-round pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Ball State University.

Castellanos was designated for assignment last week to make room on the 40-man roster for Mike Baxter, who was claimed off waivers from the Mets. He played only eight games with the Dodgers, spending the rest of the season at Triple-A Albuquerque. The 27-year-old Castellanos was acquired from St. Louis in the 2011 Rafael Furcal trade.
