Dodgers News: LHP Bryan Hudson Joining LA Roster, Scott DFA’d

The Dodgers announced another pitching move Saturday prior to their game against the San Francisco Giants. The team called up left-hand pitcher Bryan Hudson from Oklahoma City and in a corresponding move, designated relief pitcher Tayler Scott for assignment. 

Hudson will be the next in line for Los Angeles to make their Major League debut this season. He was solid during his time in Triple-A, posting a 4-0 record with an ERA of 2.17. He also added in 51 strikeouts over 29 innings pitched and had four saves as well.

Hudson will have the task of trying to help bolster the Dodgers bullpen, which has struggled heavily this season. As a team, the Dodgers bullpen ERA ranks towards the bottom of baseball and has given up games on a consistent basis.

As for Scott, he was bad for the Dodgers during his time. Over just six games played for the Dodgers this season, he posted an ERA of 9.00. It was time to end the trial run and make a change before it was too late.

Hopefully Hudson can provide some immediate relief to this reeling Dodgers bullpen. If he can produce well enough, he could be a candidate to stay with the club simply due to them having a need for arms that they can count on. Game after game, the Dodgers never know what to expect from their bullpen and this move is likely the first of many if things don’t improve.

Los Angeles uncharacteristically has struggled to solve their issues out of the pen and it has hurt them in the standings. They sit three games back of the Arizona Diamondbacks for the NL West lead and just a few games over the San Francisco Giants for the second spot.

LA is just 4-6 over their last 10 games overall and they will look to try and turn things around as they continue their series with the Giants tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 p.m. PST, live from Dodger Stadium.
