The Dodgers have claimed righty Alec Asher off waivers from the Orioles, per a club announcement. Fellow right-hander Michael Kelly, who was also recently designated for assignment, has cleared waivers and been outrighted by the O’s. To clear a 40-man spot for Asher, the Dodgers have designated righty Zach Neal.
Asher and Kelly were each late-spring roster casualties for the O’s. The former is a 26-year-old swingman who has not yet found much success in the majors. In his 170 1/3 innings at Triple-A, though, he owns a useful 3.75 RA with 6.4 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. Obviously, the Dodgers see something they like.
As for the 29-year-old Neal, he recently had his contract selected and appeared in one inning at the MLB level. The former Athletics hurler had joined the Dodgers on a minors pact. In his 85 2/3 lifetime innings at the game’s highest level, Neal owns a 4.94 ERA with an unusual mix of 3.9 K/9 and 0.7 BB/9.
dodgers claimed their own guy?
Yep seems 100% legit
Dont understand why this got 1 downvote. Even w/o typo, This would still be funny, because Dodgers utilize waivers more than any other club.
Are you a woman? Who gives two snots about a downvote or whatever…post like a man this isn’t a popularity contest who cares what people think
Women give two snots, huh? I guess men in need of overcompensation just fart out whatever they want, because it makes the brain feel good.
Just giving props to what I thought was a clever-worded post. I wanted his critic to explain Y. I never thought I’d get a response. But guess we know who. Women? Oh the irony (Compare our posts, and go with your stereotype)
Oh no did I get downvotes? Oh that’s right I don’t care so I didn’t check…I guess there are men (biologically anyways) that care about that kind of stuff too, sorry about the stereotype
Are you a knuckle draggin cave man? Do you kiss your mama with that mouth?
“The Dodgers have claimed righty Alec Asher off waivers from the Dodgers”……
Typos are fun. Thanks for the chuckle Jeff!!
Off waivers from the Orioles not the Dodgers
is this a late april fool’s joke…. ???
The Dodgers front office spins a wheel to decide who to claim each day
It doesn’t feel quite that scientific.
Dodgers should have claimed Trayce again, just to complete the cycle.
That’s funny. Makes one wonder how a team can claim there own player? Lol
They’re in trouble. Dave Roberts will be gone.
Gone where. To new york to get his manager of year trophy. The player love him and he manages the bullpen to a tee. Explain how there in trouble and this is coming from a Dodger hating Orioles fan ,..
Nice, Dodgers troll…lets all react at once
Is there anyone the Dodgers won’t claim?
I’m guessing just about anyone but a LF. They’re on a pace for 100 players claimed/released this season.
No worries ! 6th straight NL west title in the bag ! With a side of 6th straight playoff choke..
Waiver all you want boys in blue! LA loves you!
