The Indians today acquired RHP Duke von Schamann from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for LHP Colt Hynes.
Von Schamann, 22, opened the 2014 season at Double-A Chattanooga, where he made one start (W, 7.0IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 2K). The 6-5 right-hander split 2013 between Chattanooga and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga where he went a combined 11-7 with a 4.67 ERA in 27 games/23 starts (131.0IP, 146H, 68ER, 38BB, 100K). He owns a three-year professional mark of 18-11 with a 3.93 ERA in 43 games/37 starts (213.0IP, 211H, 93ER, 52BB, 146K). He was LA's 15th round selection in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Texas Tech and will be assigned to the Double-A Akron roster.
Hynes was designated for assignment on March 30.
