The New York Yankees traded outfielder Joey Gallo to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed pitching prospect Clayton Beeter, the teams announced.

Los Angeles will pay the close to $4 million left on Gallo’s contract, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Gallo, who’s a two-time All-Star, struggled immensely after getting dealt to the Yankees at last year’s deadline. The 28-year-old owns a .159/.291/.368 slash line with 25 homers over 140 games with New York. He accrued an .833 OPS with 145 round-trippers over 568 contests with the Texas Rangers to begin his career.

Meanwhile, Beeter is the No.15 prospect in the Dodgers’ minor-league system, according to Baseball America. The 23-year-old has recorded a 5.75 ERA with 88 strikeouts over 51 2/3 innings in Double-A this season.
