Selected in the 25th round of the 2012 draft, Daniel Coulombe spent his first three seasons in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization making his way up the Minor League ranks. In 2014, Coulombe spent time with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga before surprisingly making his MLB debut in September.
Coulombe was not among the players calledup when rosters expanded Sept. 1, instead joining the team on Sept. 16, which was one day after the Dodgers used a plethora of relievers in a game against the Colorado Rockies.
The Dodgers wasted no time in calling on the southpaw, who pitched one scoreless inning in his first game with the team. Coulombe appeared in a total of five games with the Dodgers and finished with a 4.15 ERA.
During his time in the Minors, Coulombe combined to go 3-0 with six saves and a 2.89 ERA in 49 relief appearances with the Quakes and Lookouts. He joined the Lookouts in July and collected three saves during their postseason run.
Coulombe will likely begin next season with the Dodgers’ new Double-A affiliate in Tulsa and could again see time in the Majors given the experience he gained this season.
Dodgers Nation would like to wish Coulombe a happy 26th birthday!
