ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired reliever J.P. Feyereisen from the Tampa Bay Rays for minor league left-hander Jeff Belge on Wednesday.

Feyereisen was designated for assignment Tuesday when the Rays finalized right-hander Zach Eflin's $40 million, three-year contract. Feyereisen underwent right shoulder surgery on Dec. 7 for a general cleanup of his rotator cuff and labrum, and he could miss most of the 2023 season.

Feyereisen allowed one unearned run and seven hits in 24 innings over 22 appearances in 2022 before being shut down June 2 due to right shoulder impingement.

Belge went 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA in 29 games, including one start, last season for Class A Great Lakes. He was assigned to Double-A Montgomery by the Rays.
