The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired minor league infielder Osvaldo (Ozzie) Martinez from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for cash considerations, reports Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

The White Sox acquired Martinez from the Miami Marlins this off-season as a part of the compensation for manager Ozzie Guillen.

The 24-year-old has appeared in 34 games at the major league level as a member of the Marlins, the team that drafted him in 2006. Over his 66 at-bats, Martinez has maintained a line of .258/.300/.348.

Prior to the trade, Martinez had played in 60 games for the White Sox Triple-A affiliate. Over his 214 at-bats, he hit at a clip of only .178/.221/.229 with 11 doubles and 15 runs scored. Martinez owns a career minor league OPS of .659.
