The third time’s the charm for the Dodgers as they acquire RHP Jake Reed once again. Reed is set to enter his third season in the league and third stint with the Dodgers during the span.
Reed was claimed off waivers from the Red Sox although he began the 2022 season with the Dodgers. Reed was also acquired from waivers from the Mets before eventually being claimed off waivers by the Orioles in September from the Dodgers.
Reed has struggled to find a home but with the number of times teams have chosen to give him a chance, it’s clear there’s some hope.

Before being selected by the Twins in 2014, Reed spent his college career at Oregon and set a record for innings pitched by a freshman in a single season. He eventually served as the Ducks’ closer posting a 4-1 record with a career 1.93 ERA and 13 saves.
Unfortunately, his professional career hasn’t been as spectacular with a 5.74 career ERA in two seasons while delivering 23 strikeouts in 26.2 innings pitched.
The Dodgers can use some help in the pitching unit, especially in the bullpen, and Reed will hope to revitalize his career for a third time with the Dodgers. The team can’t seem to let him walk away and the 29-year-old pitcher still has plenty of potential to prove the doubters wrong.
