With a day off on Thursday, the Los Angeles Dodgers had time to relax after a stretch of 16 games in 16 days.

Even without a game, the Dodgers still made a move on Thursday when they announced that they traded left-hander Daniel Coulombe to the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations.

Coulombe was designated for assignment on Sunday when the Dodgers purchased the contract of outfielder Chris Heisey.

Heisey was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on August 31 for cash considerations. He was with the team earlier in the season before being released.

As for Coulombe, the left-hander pitched five games for the Dodgers this season. He tossed 8.1 innings, allowing nine hits and seven earned runs with seven strikeouts. The 25-year-old was recalled several times throughout the year. Coulombe also pitched five games in 2014, allowing five hits and three runs (two unearned) in 4.1 innings.

The young reliever was drafted in the 25th round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Dodgers out of Texas Tech University. He climbed the minor league ranks and made his debut in 2014.
