Dodgers Cut Two Guys From Major League Roster, More to Come

The Dodgers continued their roster cuts before Friday’s game.



The Dodgers continue to cut down their Spring Training roster today. After sending Josiah Gray and Edwin Uceta to minor league camp this week, they sent two more pitchers today. Right-handed pitcher Mitch White and lefty Victor Gonzalez were optioned. 

The move is not a surprise by any means. The Dodgers have plenty of guys competing for the Opening Day roster that need to get more innings in, and these two guys do not. White and Gonzalez were never really considered as options to start the season with the big league club. 

Mitch White is ranked as the Dodgers’ number eleven overall prospect, and their fifth-best pitching prospect. White appeared in three innings for the big league team this spring, allowing two earned runs and striking out two. He pitched well at Double-A last season but got hit hard when promoted to Triple-A.

Victor Gonzalez is the Dodgers number twenty-one overall prospect, but their best left-handed pitching prospect. He also appeared in three innings this spring, allowing one earned run and striking out three. Gonzalez pitched to a 2.31 earned run average across three different levels in the minors in 2019. 

There are now 58 players remaining in camp, with 28 of them being pitchers. The team will need to cut that all the way down to 26 by Opening Day. The battle for the starting rotation is the real thing to watch though. The Dodgers entered camp with ten guys who could spend time in the rotation, and that number has not change yet.

  1. It may only be spring, but the team better start worrying about will smith who is struggling at the plate and is swinging at pitches out of the zone…he looks like austin barnes. And Pollack? Five years of this guy. Just when they got rid of the crawford albatross, Friedman decides to get another. Guess he likes having dead weight as some sort of ballast. But again, it’s only spring.
