Dodgers file two waiver claims; Kershaw, Duffy to 60 Days Illinois

The Dodgers announced on Monday that they claimed The Catcher Anthony Bambom Of the concessions of angels and the truth Conner Green From the concessions of the Orioles. In order to open a space in the 40-man roster, Los Angeles moved left-handers Danny Duffy And Clayton Kershaw To the list of infected 60 days. The minimum “60 days” in those IL assignments for Duffy and Kershaw begins with their initial placement in IL – July 20 for Duffy and July 7 for Kershaw. Duffy will be eligible to return on September 18 and Kershaw on September 5.

Bombom, 31, hit 0.213/.302/.347 in 88 games with the Angels over the past two seasons. He also scored some very short time in the league with the Rays. While Bemboom hasn’t hit much in the Majors with a small sample of career games, he has hit .256/.349/.410 in parts of five Triple-A seasons. It also has an excellent steal rate of 35 percent behind the plate, and has been credited with solid framing marks in the Baseball Bulletin, FanGraphs and Statcast.

Angels appointed Bemboom for the mission over the weekend when claiming a fellow catcher Chad Wallach From the concessions of the Marlins. Bemboom will now head to the Dodgers and provide some expert depth to a club that has just traded away their top potential players. Kibert Ruiz In the Max Scherzer/Tria Turner Turnout.

Green, 26, made his league debut with the Orioles this season but took a heavy hit in 3 2/3 runs.

However, Greene averaged nearly 96 mph with his heater with the Orioles and posted powerful swing hits and chase rates for opponents. Green was a potential observer for several years, plotting 70 degrees on his heater and 55 and 60 degrees on his shift (on a 20-80 scale). He’s had control issues throughout the minor league (11.2% walking rate), but the Dodgers seem fascinated by his raw stuff and might have their own ideas on how to maximize his potential. Green could be selected for the rest of the season, but he will be out of minor league options in 2022.

The news of Kershaw moving to IL for 60 days shouldn’t come as a huge surprise after manager Dave Roberts recently said he expects the left-hander to stay until September. However, Duffy’s transition to IL for 60 days is a bit surprising. General Manager, Royals Dayton Moore He said shortly before trading Duffy To the Dodgers family, he predicted the return of Southern pop sometime in mid-August. The Dodgers were, of course, able to make their own assessment of Duffy’s doctors and were aware of the danger of a longer absence, but they were probably hoping to get Duffy back to the pile sooner than that. If the remainder of his flexor strain rehabilitation goes well, Duffy could still be an option for the final few weeks of the season and a post-season candidate.
