LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers got closer Danys Baez and reliever Lance Carter from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Saturday.

In exchange, the Dodgers sent pitchers Edwin Jackson and Chuck Tiffany to Tampa Bay.

Baez served as the primary closer for the Devil Rays the last two seasons with 71 saves in 82 chances. Last year, he had a 5-4 record with a 2.86 ERA and 41 saves in 67 games.
