The Dodgers continue to make roster moves with the free agency hot stove in mind. This week, the team freed up a spot on the 40-man roster by waiving reliever Wander Suero. The 32-year-old right-hander cleared waivers and elected to enter free agency.
Suero spent the majority of the season in Triple-A with the Oklahoma City Dodgers. In 49.2 innings, Suero had a 3.26 ERA which was eighth best in the Pacific Coast League this season.
Suero spent some time in Los Angeles this season where he struggled in his first big league time since 2021. In 8 innings with the Dodgers, Suero gave up 7 runs and had a 9/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Suero was on the Washington Nationals from 2018-2021 and won a World Series with the team in 2019.
It now seems that the next team to acquire Suero will sign him to a minor league deal.
With an extra spot on the Dodgers 40-man roster, the team now has more flexibility to acquire more free agents or promote some younger players to the roster to protect in the upcoming Rule 5 draft this winter.
