Sherrill Traded to Dodgers

By Ben Butanis

WNST.net is indicating the Orioles have traded closer George Sherrill to the Dodgers for third baseman Josh Bell and pitcher Steve Johnson.

Scout.com ranked Bell as the Dodgers' no. 6 prospect this year. Bell's name repeatedly came up during talks of a trade between the Dodgers and Blue Jays concerning Roy Halladay.

In AA Chattanooga, Bell was batting .296 with 30 doubles, 11 home runs and 52 RBI in 94 games this season.

Steve Johnson has only pitched two games in AA this season, going 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA over 10.2 innings. Scout.com had him listed as the no. 9 prospect in the Dodgers' system. He is also the son of the Orioles' Dave Johnson.
