The Dodgers have announced that they’ve designated righty Matt West for assignment. The move clears space on their active roster for Brandon Beachy, who has been activated from the 60-day DL to start tonight. They also optioned righty Josh Ravin to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
West, 26, pitched well for Double-A Tulsa since being acquired in a minor deal with the Blue Jays in May, but he’s struggled for Oklahoma City, posting a 7.20 ERA, 6.3 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 in 20 innings there. He also made two relief appearances in the big leagues in June, allowing no runs while striking out two and walking one in three innings.
