Dodgers News: LA Loses Another Journeyman Pitcher to the Mets

As the fallout from the trade deadline continues, the Dodgers lost one more organizational depth piece on Friday. Recently DFA’d Tyson Miller was claimed by the Mets, joining Phil Bickford and Adam Kolarek as former Dodgers now playing for New York.

Miller was optioned to Triple-A when the Dodgers activated recently acquired starter Lance Lynn last week and was later designated for assignment on Wednesday to clear space on the 40 man roster for the return of Ryan Pepiot. Pepiot was activated off the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A.

The journeyman reliever got into one game with LA, allowing 2 runs in 2 innings. He’s also pitched for the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, and Milwaukee Brewers over his major league career, putting together an 8.00 ERA over 14 total games.

The Dodgers’ roster is currently at 40 players with 10 additional players on the 60-day IL. Roster spots will eventually need to be cleared for Walker Buehler, who is on the road to return, and Shelby Miller, who is eligible to return mid-August.
