Ahead of Friday night’s win, the Dodgers made yet another series of roster moves, which are about as commonplace as the sun rising each day. The team announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Shane Greene to a major league deal. He was immediately placed on the active roster.
In corresponding moves, another Greene, righty pitcher Conner, was designated for assignment and reliever Evan Phillips was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right quad strain. Phillips made his LA debut on Thursday night, allowing 1 run in 2.1 innings of relief.
If the name Shane Greene sounds familiar to you, it should. Multiple rumors had the Dodgers interested in trading for the pitcher at the 2019 trade deadline. He eventually ended up with the Atlanta Braves that season and was a key contributor in their bullpen up until this season.
However, things have gone as poorly as they can for Shane in 2021. In 19 games, the 32-year-old has allowed 16 earned runs in 17 innings (8.47 ERA). Over his career, he’s posted a 4.53 ERA with 66 saves in 332 major league games.
Conner Greene tossed 2 scoreless innings with the Dodgers this year after being picked up off the waiver wire from Baltimore.
