Dodgers Roster: Alex Reyes, David Peralta, and Jimmy Nelson Signings Officially Announced, 3 Transferred to IL

If you were wondering why the Dodgers hadn’t officially announced the signings of David Peralta and Alex Reyes yet, it’s because they didn’t have room on the 40-man roster. Making those signings official a couple days ago would have required designating someone for assignment to remove them from the roster.

But now that spring training has officially started, the 60-day injured list is now back in play. Players on the 60-day IL don’t count towards the 40-man roster limits, but the 60-day IL doesn’t exist in the offseason. Now that it does, Los Angeles made a flurry of moves on Thursday.

Along with Peralta and Reyes, LA also made official the re-signing of Jimmy Nelson, which was reported yesterday. Walker Buehler, Blake Treinen, and JP Feyereisen all move to the 60-day IL to make room.

All three pitchers on the 60-day IL are questionable to pitch at all this year. Buehler is recovering from Tommy John surgery, while Treinen and Feyereisen had similar shoulder surgeries to repair rotator cuffs and labrums. Feyereisen isn’t expected back until at least late August, and Buehler and Treinen are probably on even longer timetables. It wouldn’t be a surprise if all three spend the entire season on the 60-day IL.

Los Angeles acquired Feyereisen from the Rays in December, less than a week after his surgery. It was more of a long-term move than anything, as Feyereisen is still under team control for three more years after 2023. He has a 2.31 career ERA in three seasons with the Brewers and Rays, including a sparkling 0.00 ERA in 24.1 innings last year.
