Dodgers Acquire Drew Butera

The Dodgers acquired catcher Drew Butera from the Twins, tweets ESPN's Jayson Stark.  The Twins will receive a player to be named later or cash.

Butera, 29, appeared in two games for the Twins this year.  At Triple-A, he has a .229/.258/.325 line in 90 plate appearances.  He missed a chunk of time this season with a broken left pinkie finger.  He'll provide organizational depth at catcher, notes Yahoo's Tim Brown.  Drafted by the Mets in the fifth round in 2005, Butera was traded to the Twins in the July 2007 Luis Castillo deal.  He's earning $700K this year as a first-time arbitration eligible player.  The Dodgers already had an open spot on their 40-man roster to accommodate Butera.

And thus ends your 2013 MLB Trade Deadline.
