Esteban Loaiza a Dodger

The Dodgers have claimed Esteban Loaiza on waivers from the Oakland A's.

This is one of those rare instances where a claim is put in on a high dollar player...I guess the Dodgers were afraid Arizona or San Diego might make a play for him.

Oakland gets nothing for Loaiza, but now doesn't have to pay him the $7 million he's owed for next season. Loaiza ended up being one of Billy Beane's less-inspired moves...
