The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired infielder Cavan Biggio from the Toronto Blue Jays, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.

ESPN reported that the Blue Jays will receive right-handed prospect Braydon Fisher in exchange.

Toronto designated Biggio for assignment on Friday. Biggio, 29, has struggled this season, batting just .200 with two homers and nine RBIs in 44 games.

The son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio showed promise as a rookie with 16 homers, 48 RBIs and 14 steals in 100 games in 2019. He finished fifth in American League Rookie of the Year balloting.

But he's never reached double digits in homers or even had as many as 70 hits in a season since. Biggio started 34 games this season, 23 at second base.

Biggio has a .227 career average with 48 homers and 176 RBIs in 490 games with the Blue Jays.

He joins a Dodgers roster that is currently missing third baseman Max Muncy, who is on the injured list with a strained oblique.

Fisher, 23, was a fourth-round pick in 2018 and has yet to make his major league debut. He is 2-1 with a 5.68 ERA in 15 relief appearances this season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City.
