Charlie Haeger Clears Waivers

WEDNESDAY: Haeger cleared waivers and the Dodgers assigned him to Triple A, according to MLB.com's transactions page.

FRIDAY: The Dodgers have designated Charlie Haeger for assignment, tweets Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. As the Times' Steve Dilbeck speculated earlier today, Jon Link will take Haeger's place on the roster, likely only until Monday, when Chad Billingsley should be activated from the disabled list.

Since opening his 2010 season with an impressive 12-strikeout performance, Haeger has struggled mightily, compiling a 9.38 ERA between the rotation and the bullpen. In 24 IP over those eight appearances, the 26-year-old walked 22 batters and allowed hitters to post a 1.001 OPS.

  1. Thank the lord. I’d rather see Charlie Hough get promoted from the Cal League than see Haeger throw another pitch.

    Face it folks, Haeger was only on the roster until we got Claudio Vargas back.

  10. Am I the only person who thinks Haeger could’ve been fantastic out of the pen? You don’t see knuckleballers like him anymore outside of Wakefield; is that why he was starter or bust? As a long or middle reliever, you come out of the pen with that knuckleball for 2-4 innings, & nobody would have it figured out by the time Kuo or Broxton came in. And just try to hit a 98 mph fastball after seeing a 70 mph knuckler for a couple at-bats. Granted, it’s feast or famine & you never know whether he’ll throw strikes or balls, but neither do the hitters. I think he’s a cheap & undervalued asset for a bullpen that’s been awful. Don’t toss him, use him the right way, ’cause when he’s on, he’s on

    Last time I checked Stults had an ERA over 6.00 in Japan… not sure if he’s still playing that poorly, but…
