The Dodgers traded pitcher Octavio Dotel to the Rockies for a player to be named later, according to Rotoworld.com. Dotel is 3-3 on the year between Pirates and the Dodgers, and won't be eligible for the postseason if the Rockies can pull off another miracle September. 

Dotel's option for the 2011 season became a mutual option after he was traded, meaning he will likely exercise his 4.5 option following this season.
