The Milwaukee Brewers today acquired RHP Claudio Vargas from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for minor league C Vinny Rottino, it was announced today by Brewers Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin.

Vargas, 31, has made eight appearances out of the bullpen this season for the Dodgers, posting a record of 0-0 with a 1.64 ERA (2er/11ip). Vargas was placed on the Disabled List on April 6 with right elbow tendinitis and was activated on July 3. He signed with the Dodgers as a Free Agent on January 2.

This is the second stint for Vargas with the Brewers organization. He made 29 appearances, 23 starts, with Milwaukee in 2007, posting an 11-6 record with a 5.09 ERA (76er/134.1ip). He was released by the Brewers on March 25, 2008.

Vargas will report to the team tomorrow in San Diego at which time a corresponding roster move will be made. He will wear #50.
