The Dodgers and Rays swung a deal late Thursday night, with right-hander Joel Peralta and left-hander Adam Liberatore heading to Los Angeles in exchange for right-handed pitchers Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.

Peralta, 38, recently had his team option picked up by the Rays and will become a middle reliever for the Dodgers next season. The veteran posted a rough 4.41 ERA in 63.1 innings for Tampa last season, but has been a solid contributor over the last four seasons and has a career 3.92 ERA in 556 appearances.

Liberatore, 27, was a 21st round pick by the Rays in the 2010 draft, and has not yet reached the major leagues. He was very effective as a reliever for Triple-A Durham, posting a 6-1 record and 1.66 ERA in 65 innings on the year.

Dominguez, 24, is a reliever who made his major league debut for the Dodgers in 2013 and has split the last two seasons between the big leagues and Triple-A Albuquerque. He has a 6.14 ERA in 14.2 major league innings, but has posted a 1.78 ERA and 3.63 ERA in the minors over the last two seasons. Dominguez was ranked as the eleventh best prospect by Baseball America after last season.

Harris, 20, spent 2014 with Single-A Great Lakes, posting a 7-6 record and 4.45 ERA in 22 games (16 starts). He was the Dodgers' seventeenth round pick in 2013, and is not considered a top prospect.
