The Pittsburgh Pirates traded left-handed reliever Jose Hernandez to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations, the clubs announced Thursday.

The Pirates designated the 26-year-old Hernandez for assignment on Tuesday. The move reunites Hernandez with the club that originally signed him as an international free agent in 2016.

To make room on the roster for Hernandez, the Dodgers transferred right-handed reliever Ryan Brasier to the 60-day injured list. Brasier has been out with a strained calf since late April.

Hernandez is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in seven games, all out of the bullpen, this season. He has one save. After the Pirates acquired Hernandez from the Dodgers in the Rule 5 draft in December 2022, he made his major league debut last season and pitched in 50 games.

The Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic native has a career 2-4 record with a 4.82 ERA and the one save in 57 career games. He has 66 strikeouts with 26 walks in 56 career innings.
