Welcome to the Blue, Jake Peter!

I blame the flu!

I know this trade occurred two weeks ago, so apologize for this late post. As you already know, the Dodgers completed a three-team trade that netted them a reliever named Scott Alexander and a utility player named Jake Peter. This post celebrates Jake's addition to the ballclub. Per a Dodger press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced the completion of a three-team trade with the White Sox and the Royals, with the Dodgers receiving left-handed pitcher Scott Alexander and minor league infielder Jake Peter; the White Sox receiving left-handed pitcher Luis Avilán, right-handed pitcher Joakim Soria and cash considerations; and the Royals receiving infielder Erick Mejia and right-handed pitcher Trevor Oaks.
