LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Dodgers have bolstered their roster for a playoff push, acquiring slugger Jim Thome from the Chicago White Sox and right-hander Jon Garland from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The deals were announced by Los Angeles in the top of the eighth inning of Monday night's game against Arizona. Both trades were for
players to be named and were completed before the midnight EDT deadline required for postseason eligibility.
Thome goes from a third-place team trailing Detroit and Minnesota in the American League Central Division to the first-place Dodgers, who came into Monday night leading the NL West by six games.
