Dodgers Lose Veteran Reliever, Who Elects to Leave Organization

The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost another veteran reliever.

Right-handed pitcher Dinelson Lamet, who made three appearances with the Dodgers this season at the MLB level, has elected free agency, according to the MiLB transaction log.

Lamet, 31, threw 4.1 innings with L.A. this season, allowing just one earned run for a 2.08 ERA. However, he was one of the many relievers who shuffled around the team’s bullpen, and likely decided it was time to find a new home.

Lamet made nine appearances (eight starts) at Triple-A Oklahoma City, sporting a 4.82 ERA across 37.1 innings pitched. He’ll now look for his next home, and will likely look to find a team that will give him an opportunity at the MLB level.

Lamet’s MLB career began back in 2017 with the San Diego Padres. He was with the Padres until midway through the 2022 season, when he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers as part of the Josh Hader trade. He never played for the Brewers, though, and shortly thereafter joined the NL West rival Colorado Rockies. Lamet spent the 2023 season with the Rockies and Boston Red Sox, before joining the Dodgers on a minor league deal this offseason.

Lamet has a career 4.63 ERA in 121 appearances (60 starts). He made a strong impression with the Dodgers in limited action as a reliever this year, and should be able to find a new home sooner rather than later.

    1. They’re definitely going….. Down down down,… 8 games out already, all the while, LAD is playing pretty piss poor. LA isnt going to peak to early this year,.they’ll wait until September to get going in 5th gear. That way teams won’t have a exact read on LA for the playoffs.
