The Dodgers signed Brandon Morrow late in the game, and it appears he didn’t make enough of an impression to stick around.

Dave Roberts said Morrow won’t make the team, but will accept a minor league assignment.

Morrow wasn’t expected to sneak on the team, though with the usual number of injuries affecting the Dodgers it became more reasonable.

The veteran has a 4.82 ERA this spring, appearing in 11 games and pitching 9.1 innings. Last season, he only pitched 16 innings with San Diego.

With a June 1 opt-out, Morrow holds the cards. If he excels, he’ll force a promotion or the chance to explore other options. If he struggles, he’ll still be paid.
