Report: Sherrill to Dodgers

Breaking news! Lest we forget, we are almost 24 hours away from the non-waiver trade deadline.

According to a post on Twitter, Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse cites a source as saying that Orioles closer George Sherrill has been traded to the Dodgers.

Looking to fortify their pen, the Dodgers have been connected to Sherrill all week long. After prospect LHP Scott Elbert was scratched from a start for Triple-A Albuquerque last night, there was some thought that he could be headed to the Orioles. Stay tuned on that front.

Sherrill had a 2.40 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 20 saves in 42 appearances for the Orioles this season.

Update: Ken Gurnick of MLB.com says third base prospect Josh Bell and right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson are headed to Baltimore.
