Phillies trade Blanton to Dodgers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joe Blanton earned a World Series ring the last time he was traded. He's hoping for an encore.
The right-hander was sent from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Dodgers on Friday after Los Angeles claimed him on waivers.
Blanton will join outfielder Shane Victorino, who was traded from Philadelphia to Los Angeles on Tuesday. The last-place Phillies also dealt outfielder Hunter Pence to San Francisco earlier this week.
