Dodgers News: AJ Pollock Transferred to 60-Day Injured List
The Dodgers have transferred AJ Pollock to the 60-day injured list to create the necessary roster space for the recalling of left-hander Zac Rosscup.
The Dodgers today recalled IF Edwin Ríos and selected the contract of LHP Zac Rosscup. To make room on the 25-man roster, the Dodgers optioned pitchers Tony Gonsolin and Caleb Ferguson, while transferring A.J. Pollock to the 60-day injured list to make room on the 40-man roster.

Pollock, signed this off-season by the Dodgers, has missed a majority of the season with an elbow infection.
The club is still expecting him to resurface shortly after the All-Star Break. His placement on the 60-day injured list has no affect on his return timetable.
Before going down, Pollock posted just a 64 wRC+ and -0.3 WAR in his first 28 games in Los Angeles.
I am OK with bringing Rosscup up for the BP but Rios is yet another LH bat we already have an abundance of. Memo to FO and Roberts…there is such a thing as a RH hitters box at home plate….
Great more clogging in the infield. Hey Geniuses, you know where we could actually use a call up? The Catching position. Lose either Martin or Barnes and call up Smith and leave him here
Totally agree. Austin Barnes can go Russell Martin has made plenty of bad plays. Dropped balls on tag plays. Passed balls etc. He had bright spot pitching 1 inning getting 3 outs on 8 pitches.
