When the Dodgers added in Jake McGee in the 2020 season, they really turned things around for him. He posted a ridiculous 1.67 FIP and 2.66 ERA across 24 appearances for Los Angeles. It really was a diamond in the rough situation for Andrew Friedman and his team.
But things have not gone so well for him since leaving the Dodgers. He went up to the Giants and had some success in the 2021 season. But the 2022 season has been a total meltdown for him, so much so that he was let go by San Francisco.
Now he’s on the move again. McGee was designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers this week, and he will now head out to the Washington Nationals. So another day, another team for Jake.
Nationals have claimed left-handed reliever Jake McGee on outright waivers from the Brewers and designated outfielder Donovan Casey (one of the four players they got from LA last July) for assignment.

Other Dodgers News
The Dodgers and their fans have not loved Coors Field. It seems like anytime they visit the Mile High City, the wheels fall off and someone gets hurt. But that didn’t stop Tony Gonsolin from saying that it’s one of his favorite parks to visit. That’s pretty wild for a pitcher to say, given that the ball soars out of the stadium.
The Clayton Kershaw injury is a little unnerving for Dodgers fans. They’re hoping that it isn’t too serious this time around, but MLB experts are very much worried about what his short-term future might look like. If he were to miss significant time this season, it would be a really big problem for them.
