Dodgers News: LA Acquires RHP Tyson Miller from Brewers, Hudson to 60-Day

The Dodgers don’t believe in days off. On Wednesday’s league-wide day off following the All-Star Game, the club announced a pair of transactions via Twitter. First, RHP Tyson Miller has been acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for cash. In a corresponding move, the club transferred veteran reliever Daniel Hudson to the 60-day injured list.

Miller, 27, has mostly pitched around the minor league ranks since being drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2016. He made his MLB with the Cubs in 2020, making 2 appearances including a spot start for the North Siders. Miller has also pitched for the Texas Rangers and Milwaukee Brewers, getting into 13 total games at the big league level and posting a 7.92 ERA across parts of three seasons.

He’s been more consistent down in the minor leagues with a 4.03 ERA over 152 games (100 starts) since his pro debut in 2016. He’ll join the Triple-A Oklahoma City roster, which has been a bit thin while the Dodgers have dealt with injuries.

Speaking of injuries, the move to the 60-day IL doesn’t bode well for Daniel Hudson. The reliever just made his long-await return from the IL, coming back from a left ACL injury and knee reconstruction only to injure the MCL in his right knee in just his third appearance this season. In a best case scenario, he could return late in September, but the Dodgers don’t seem optimistic about that.

The club will be back in action on Friday as they take on the Mets in New York. Julio Urias gets the ball.
