Dodgers News: Journeyman Pitcher Removed From Roster

The Los Angeles Dodgers have outrighted right-handed relief pitcher Tyler Cyr to the Oklahoma City Dodgers.

The outright took place on Tuesday, per Dodgers insider Eric Stephen.

Cyr only played in two games with the Boys in Blue this season. He finished the season on the 60-day injuries list due to a shoulder impingement.

This outright means he will not be part of the 40-man roster leading into the offseason, which is the day after the conclusion of the World Series. In addition, this move clears up some decisions ahead of the November 17th tender deadline.

Cyr was solid with the Dodgers in his two appearances, pitching in 1.2 innings, allowing only one hit, zero runs, two strikeouts, and a 0.00 ERA. The issue, of course, was his health and inability to stick around the big leagues, as he has spent eight seasons in the minors compared to only two in the majors.

The Dodgers have a ton more work to do as they lay the groundwork for what should be a significant offseason for the front office.
