Dodgers acquire LHP Cedeno from Nationals

Los Angeles, CA ( – The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired
left-hander Xavier Cedeno from the Washington Nationals in exchange for cash

allowing two runs in three innings over five appearances in 2015. Lefties
batted .252 against him in that time.

In five seasons with the Nationals and Astros, Cedeno has a 5.24 ERA in 55
total innings with 54 strikeouts.
