The Los Angeles Dodgers made a bit of a surprising trade on Friday as they acquired Russell Martin from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for Minor Leaguers Ronny Brito and Andrew Sopko.

With only one year remaining on his contract, Martin, along with Austin Barnes, can be a stopgap at the position for the Dodgers with top prospects Keibert Ruiz and Will Smith both being around a year away from being Major League-ready.

According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet, who was on a conference call with Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins shortly after the trade was announced, the Jays will be sending $16.4 million to the Dodgers to cover the majority of his $20 million salary in 2019.

Brito, 19, is a Dominican-born infielder who spent last season in rookie ball.

Excited about once again joining the Dodgers, the team that originally drafted him in 2002, Martin said he is "looking forward to being back with the Dodgers where it all began".

The four-time all-star has also played for the New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates over his 13-year big-league career.

He hit just.194 for the Blue Jays last season, but still gets on base (.349 career OBP) and was a plus-7 in defensive runs saved at catcher in 2018. Martin is slated to become a free agent at the end of the 2019 season.

The Blue Jays have been stockpiling prospects and will field a young team in 2019 with an eye to returning to contention two or three years down the road.
