Dodgers Roster News: LA Announces Two September Call Ups

As the Dodgers get set to face the Braves again, both clubs will have a little extra firepower on the active roster. With the calendar flipping to September, rosters expand from 26 to 28 players and the Dodgers announced who will be joining the club to open the new month.

Emmet Sheehan rejoins the team and recently signed infielder Kolten Wong was added to the roster. Utility infielder Yonny Hernandez was outrighted off the 40-man roster to create a spot for Wong.

First, the rumor was confirmed and veteran infielder Kolten Wong has been added to the roster. He signed a minor league deal with LA in the middle of August and played well at Triple-A, albeit in a small sample size. In 3 games, he had 7 hits in 13 at-bats (.539) with 6 RBI.

Wong is a veteran of 11 big league seasons, most notably with the St. Louis Cardinals with whom he won two Gold Glove awards as a second baseman. He signed with the Seattle Mariners this past offseason and struggled mightily, hitting just .165 over 67 games before being released. He owns a career .718 OPS as a big leaguer.

Next, Emmet Sheehan returns to the big league roster after spending most of August at AAA. The rookie right-hander has pitched just three times since being sent down, working twice in a bulk innings role and starting one game while getting hit around to the tune of 5 runs in 1.2 innings.

In 8 games (7 starts) for LA this season, he posted a 5.63 ERA over 38.1 innings. Sheehan will likely start or pitch bulk innings on Saturday where the Dodgers don’t have a scheduled pitcher yet.

  1. Interesting that it was Sheehan and not Stone. As you mention Sheehan has not been effective at OKC and recently Stone has.
