Dodgers Add Pitcher Bobby Wahl from Brewers, Seager to 60 Day IL

The Dodgers stayed busy on Wednesday’s off day. Today the team announced the acquisition of right-handed pitcher Bobby Wahl off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers and added him to the 40-man roster. In a corresponding move, LA transferred shortstop Corey Seager to the 60-day injured list.

Wahl, 29, hasn’t appeared in a game with the Brewers this season, but made 3 appearances with the club in 2020, tossing 2.1 innings and allowing 3 earned runs. In his career at the major league level, Wahl has a 7.63 ERA over 17 appearances with the Oakland Athletics, New York Mets, and Milwaukee.

Over 7 minor league seasons, he’s posted a 3.80 ERA in 172 games (13 starts).

Corey Seager has been on the IL since fracturing his right hand on a hit by pitch on May 15th. The earliest he can now return to action on July 16, after the All-Star Game. The 27-year-old has a .265/.361/.422 triple slash line in 37 games this season.

    1. Kirk, while McKinstry may be missing a few AB’s Pollock is a RHB who normally hits LHP. If one player that could be included in a trade it is Beaty. One thing to consider is who would be sent out once Seager returns.

      1. Good point about the roster but Pollock hasn’t been hitting water if he falls out of a boat and is a health issue. Peters was doing just as well as A.J., and played much better defense and although he wasn’t hitting much either, at least he flagged down everything. Pollock is lost and wasting production from younger players IMO…

      2. anyone note the Dodgers started winning when Cody and Mookie were back in CF and RF respectively? Defense was so much better. Both Zach and Craig missed balls hit to them in right that would have been easily caught by Mookie. Cody in CF making great plays again. The Dodgers formula for winning starts with great starting pitching and defense. Based on that I am ok with AJ staying in left platooning with Zack. Can we hold on until Corey returns mid July???????????????

  1. Can Seags go play in Rancho Cucamonga during the AS break, or does he have to be activated first?
