Coulombe, 25, has appeared in ten games over the past two seasons for Los Angeles, working to a 6.39 ERA with 11 strikeouts and eight walks in 12 2/3 innings. The southpaw reliever has, however, been much better in the upper minors. This year, he’s thrown 41 1/3 frames of 3.27 ERA pitching with 8.9 K/9 against 5.2 BB/9. He had maintained double-digit strikeout-per-nine numbers over his previous three seasons in the minors.
As for Heisey, he’ll once again appear with the Dodgers after going up and down several times earlier in the year and spending some time with the Blue Jays. The 30-year-old has only 34 big league plate appearances on the year after spending the previous four seasons as a frequent part-timer with the Reds.
