Dodgers News: Pair of Relievers Given Release


It was a rough Thanksgiving for a pair of Dodgers relievers. Erik Goeddel and Zac Rosscup were given their outright release from the ball club on Wednesday. Furthermore – both pitchers were designated for assignment on Tuesday to make room on the 40-man roster.

Goeddel proved to be a surprisingly effective addition for the Dodgers in 2019. He sported a 2.95 ERA in 36 and 2/3 innings of work. Goeddel came to Los Angeles when the Dodgers bullpen was trying to find their stability. While Goeddel was an effective ground ball pitcher, control was an issue for the 30-year right hander.

Zac Rosscup is also 30 years of age, and came aboard late in the year from the Colorado Rockies. In his 11 and 1/3 innings of work, Rosscup allowed six earned runs. However, he sported a 20 to 4 strikeout to walk ratio. The lefty specialist should find work somewhere before the winter is out.

At the end of the day – this pair of moves speaks towards the organizational depth that the Dodgers have to offer. Even in a bullpen that was criticized regularly during the 2018 season.
