One Time Dodgers Reliever Released by Texas Rangers

It’s roster movement season around baseball. The Dodgers already named all 26 players for opening day next week but some teams are still trying to put all the pieces together. As such, it’s that time we start to see old friends on the chopping block. Like one-time LA reliever Reyes Moronta, who was in Rangers camp on a minor league deal.

On Friday, Texas cut the right-hander after informing him he would not make the club out of spring.

Moronta spent a few months with the Dodgers last season, performing well for a stretch before he started forgetting how to throw strikes. The Dodgers DFA’d him in August and he latched on with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the final month-plus of the season.

Altogether, Reyes posted a 4.30 ERA over 39 appearances in 2022 and owns a 3.02 career ERA over parts of 5 seasons. It’s unlikely the Dodgers explore signing him once again, but with Andrew Friedman, a minor league deal is never all that far away for occasionally successful big league pitchers.

Best of luck to the 30-year-old in what ever comes next!
