The Dodgers bid adieu Thursday to left-handed reliever Daniel Coulombe, trading him to the Oakland Athletics for cash.

Coulombe, 25, was up and down with the Dodgers three times this season. He appeared in five games, finishing without a decision and a 7.56 earned-run average and 1.80 walks plus hits per inning pitched.

At triple-A Oklahoma City he appeared in 38 games, going 3-1 with one save, a 3.27 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.

The Dodgers had designated the 5-foot-10, 190-pound pitcher for assignment Sept. 6 to add outfielder Chris Heisey to the roster.

The Dodgers had no real need for Coulombe. They have left-handed relievers J.P. Howell and Luis Avilan on the current roster, plus Adam Liberatore on their triple-A roster.
