Dodgers News: Recently Acquired Infield Prospect Claimed off Waivers by Braves

File this under mostly less than important news, but the Dodgers lost infield prospect Rylan Bannon to the Braves after Atlanta claimed the prospect off the waiver wire.

The Dodgers recently had claimed Bannon off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles and assigned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. However, less than a week after claiming him, LA designated him for assignment needing a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Tony Wolters.

Certainly, the front office was hoping he would pass through waivers and be able to rejoin the AAA ballclub, but now Bannon joins the Braves who have been in need of infield help while All-Star second baseman Ozzie Albies has been on the injured list.

Initially drafted by the Dodgers back in 2017, Bannon was included in the blockbuster trade for Manny Machado at the 2018 trade deadline. The 26-year-old finally made his MLB debut with the Orioles this year, collecting 2 hits in 14 at-bats before being DFA’d and claimed by LA.

He never had a chance to officially suit up for the AAA squad.
