Recently Released Dodgers Pitcher DFA’d By New Team

The Milwaukee Brewers signed former Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Elieser Hernández to a one-year major league contract on June 6.

On Wednesday, the Brewers designated him for assignment.

Hernández failed to impress in a four-game stint after being claimed off waivers from the Dodgers. It was the inability to hold on to a 6-0 lead on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels that set the stage for his DFA. He posted a 3.00 ERA in four appearances (six innings) with Milwaukee.

The Dodgers designated the 29-year-old for assignment and then outrighted him from their 40-man roster. Instead of accepting the assignment, he opted for free agency — which is where he could be headed again if he clears waivers. Hernández was 0-1 with an 8.38 ERA, three walks, and six strikeouts in 9.2 innings over five games (one start) for the Dodgers this season.

Before he signed with Los Angeles, Hernández spent parts of five seasons with the Miami Marlins, where was used primarily as a starter.

Overall, in parts of six big league seasons, he is 10-22 with a 5.15 ERA, 97 walks, and 283 strikeouts in 297.1 innings over 95 games (49 starts).
