Dodgers Call Up RHP Jimmie Sherfy and Option Zach Reks

Some moves before the game on Friday.



The Dodgers will be making at least one move prior to their series against the Rockies. With so many of their bullpen members rested up thanks to the All-Star break, they’re still going to add in another arm. 

On Friday night, the Dodgers added RHP Jimmie Sherfy to the roster. The team had claimed him off of waivers earlier in the week from the Giants. Sherfy appeared in 10.2 innings for San Francisco and pitched to a 4.22 earned runs average. 

In a scattered 4 seasons at the big league level, Sherfy has compiled a 3.21 ERA in 56 innings of work. That all came between the Diamondbacks and Giants. But the Thousand Oaks native grew up a Dodgers fan and now he gets his big chance. 

Sherfy is 21-17 in his minor league career that spans 288 games played. He owns a 3.51 ERA across all minor leagues levels and has pitched to a 3.51 ERA. Sherfy was originally a 10th round draft pick out of Oregon in 2013.

The Dodgers start a 3-game series in Colorado tonight. There is a possibility they throw a bullpen game within the next week due to a shortage in starters, but there is also a belief that they will call someone up. Josiah Gray makes a lot of sense given the timing of his last start. 

To make room for Sherfy on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned Zach Reks back to Triple-A. Reks appeared in 2 games this month and went 0-for-3 with 2 runs scored. Los Angeles previously designated Bobby Wahl for assignment to make room for Sherfy on the 40-man roster.
