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.
Note that the move for Seager is likely more procedural than anything. He's been out since mid-May.

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.
