The Dodgers have reportedly traded RHP Justin Grimm to the Cincinnati Reds. Grimm was signed on March 24, right before the season started.

Grimm was signed to a minor league deal, so he was not occupying a 40-man roster spot. According to Andersen Pickard, the deal was initially perceived to be a part of a larger deal, but those rumors were quickly shut down.
Los Angeles should receive something in the neighborhood of a PTBNL and/or cash considerations.
Grimm posted a 5.66 ERA and 3.43 FIP for the Oklahoma City Dodgers across 41 1/3 innings of work. His peripherals were genuinely solid with a 30.9 K% and 8.3 BB%, but the Dodgers had no room for him on the major league roster this year and would not have for the foreseeable future.
The 30 year-old relieve has 356 career MLB innings under his belt, but has never been a reliable source of good performance. He holds a 4.98 career ERA and from 2017 to 2018, a 6.69 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 73 innings.
