The Dodgers have recalled righty Mitch White from Triple-A Oklahoma City and opened a spot on the roster by designating right-hander Kevin Quackenbush for assignment, tweets Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
Quackenbush returned to the big leagues for the for the first time since 2018 recently but appeared in just one game with Los Angeles. The 32-year-old surrendered a run on three hits in one third of an inning.
While it obviously wasn’t a great outing for Quackenbush, the former Reds and Padres righty has been nothing short of dominant in Triple-A this year. He’s tallied 29 1/3 innings and pitched to a pristine 0.61 ERA, striking out 25.7 percent of his opponents against an 11.6 percent walk rate. That success in Triple-A at least creates the possibility that another club in need of bullpen depth will claim Quackenbush. It’s been several years since he was a consistently successful big league reliever, but from 2014-16 he did toss 172 1/3 innings of 3.50 ERA ball out of the Padres’ bullpen.
