Phillies Acquire RHP Ryan O'Sullivan From Dodgers to Complete Joe Blanton Trade

The Phillies and Dodgers announced today that right-handed pitcher Ryan O'Sullivan will be headed to Philadelphia to complete this month's Joe Blanton trade.

O'Sullivan, who turns 22 next month, was drafted by the Dodgers out of Oklahoma City University in the fourth round of the 2011 draft.

Our friends over at True Blue L.A. had this to say about O'Sullivan after the draft last year:

Round 4: Ryan O'Sullivan, RHP, Oklahoma City University - Ryan is the brother of current Royal Sean O'Sullivan, and has not pitched in college of the last two seasons due to an elbow issue and then academic reasons. However he throws in the low 90's (up to 94), and has a hard curveball. Baseball America actually says that he has "the same command but better stuff than his older brother".

On the 2012 season, between two stops, O'Sullivan has accumulated an 8-6 record with a 3.05 ERA, but a worrisome 31 walks and 55 strikeouts in 83 innings pitched.
