All Dodger news is Giants news too
The Baltimore Orioles are on the verge of trading George Sherrill(notes) to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday for Double-A third baseman Josh Bell and a minor league pitcher, two baseball sources said.

The pitcher is thought to be either Double-A right-hander Steve Johnson or left-hander Scott Elbert, a highly regarded prospect who has battled arm injuries.

George Sherrill - R - Baltimore Orioles cheese (Active) Thursday Jul. 30, 2009
The Dodgers have acquired LHP George Sherrill from the Orioles in exchange for prospects 3B Josh Bell and RHP Steve Johnson, multiple news outlets are reporting.
Sherrill will work as a setup man in front of closer Jonathan Broxton, which kills the left-handers fantasy value in mixed leagues. Sherrill is enjoying a stellar campaign, producing a 2.40 ERA with 20 saves and a 39/13 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. Jim Johnson is the big winner in this trade from a fantasy prospective. Johnson (3.30 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 31/16 K/BB rate in 46 1/3 innings) is assumed to be the next closer in Baltimore, although the team could always go with a committee.

Here's some skinny.

Josh Bell - 3B - Baltimore Orioles Free Agent Friday Jul. 31, 2009
Orioles acquired third baseman Josh Bell and RHP Steve Johnson from the Dodgers for LHP George Sherrill.
Bell could struggle to last at third and he's struggled to hit right-handed this year, but he has put on a show batting left-handed as a 22-year-old in Double-A. Overall, he's hit .296/.386/.497 in 334 at-bats. He could be a 25-homer guy by 2012, and if he is able to last at third, he could be an All-Star in his best years. Ideally, the Orioles would let him spend most of next year in Triple-A. Jul. 31 - 1:12 am et


Steve Johnson - S - Baltimore Orioles Free Agent Friday Jul. 31, 2009
Steve Johnson was traded from the Dodgers to the Orioles in a three-player deal.
Johnson, the son of a former Orioles pitcher and current broadcaster, was 8-4 with a 3.82 ERA for Single-A Inland Empire this season. He just moved up to Double-A and posted a 1.69 ERA in his first two starts. He has a quality low-90s fastball, but his offspeed pitchers are suspect and he projects best as a reliever. He doesn't rank as one of the Orioles' top pitching prospects. Jul. 31 - 1:09 am et
