Dodgers Release Josh Towers's Ken Gurnick reports that Los Angeles has granted Josh Towers his release.  The right-hander signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers last December, and Gurnick said the contract contained a clause where Towers could opt out if he wasn't on the major league roster by this point in the season.

Towers had an 8.05 ERA in eight starts for the Dodgers' Triple-A team this season, and has a 4.95 ERA in 139 major league games with the Orioles, Blue Jays and Yankees since 2001.

Yep, gotta exercise that escape clause for the indignity of being in Triple A. With an ERA of 8.05… Hope he finds satisfaction in this soon.

I didn’t even realize that Josh Towers was still relevant to Major League Baseball.
