Dodgers Trade for Right-Handed Pitcher From Phillies

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Connor Brodgon from the Philadelphia Phillies for minor league left-handed pitcher Benony Robles.

The Dodgers completed the trade on Saturday morning and announced the move via X.

On April 2, the Phillies designated Brogdon for assignment. He will now switch teams for the first time in his career. His 2024 season is not off to a great start. He’s allowed six runs in 2.0 innings for the Phillies in three appearances this year — 76 pitches thrown, six outs recorded. He also has recorded three strikeouts and a 4.50 WHIP.

Brogdon was in his fifth season with Philadelphia (2020-24) and was a combined 10-8 with a 3.88 ERA in 142 games (two starts). He fanned 146 batters in 144 innings while limiting hitters to a .235 batting average against. He was drafted by the Phillies in 2017 in the 10th round of the First Year Player Draft out of Lewis-Clark State.

Robles, 23, went 4-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 33 games for High-A Great Lakes last season. In five minor league campaigns, he was a combined 13-16 with a 4.67 ERA and 277 strikeouts in 250.2 innings. The Dodgers signed him on July 3, 2017.
