Dodgers Remove Terrance Gore From the 40-Man Roster

The Dodgers are in offseason mode, and that means the transactions are going to be coming in bunches over the next few weeks. Terrance Gore is certainly one of those guys that is no stranger to end-of-the-year moves on the roster. 

On Sunday afternoon, it was announced that Gore was removed from the Dodgers 40-man roster. He was outrighted to Triple-A marking the second time that he has been removed from the 40-man roster since this season. 

Gore was brought in by the Dodgers for the purpose of speed, something that he has offered since he came up to the big leagues in 2014. Since then, he has been used almost exclusively in a pinch-running role. The Royals used him like that in 2014 and 2015 in their playoff runs, and that is how Los Angeles intended to use him in 2020.

Instead, Gore did nothing more than crack the playoff rosters. The Dodgers had him during the Wild Card and the Division Series, but the team did not need him during those games. Gore signed on with the Dodgers on a minor league deal back in February and initially made the Opening Day roster. 

The Dodgers now have several members of their 2020 World Series team hitting free agency. MLB free agency officially opens today, as teams have until today to tender qualifying offers to their eligible free agents.

  1. Sign JT for a 3 year contract. He made some spectacular defensive plays! He can still handle 3rd quite well

    • Agree completely. When JT is healthy he handles 3B just fine. He upped his defensive game in the postseason and he always comes through with the bat. I’d sign him right away to remove the bad taste of that corona virus celebration garbage. He celebrated a long awaited world series championship, in which he contributed with his bat and glove. Instead of whining about corona virus protocols, reward him with contract.

  2. I disagree with Dodgerglenn. The Selfish act he did by endangering the Dodgers(testing positive for COVID-19) by taking part in the World Seried team photo, i.e. Roberts(cancer survivor), Jansen(heart issues), I have issues with. This is a pandemic going on. The U.S will struggle to get out of this. Talk to 230,000+ families who have lost a loved-one.

    • Turner had been in the clubhouse and the dugout all day long with the entire team. They had already been exposed at that point. What if the test result wasn’t known for another hour or two? Then it would’ve been okay for him to celebrate on the field? As far as Roberts and Jansen are concerned, not all cancer survivors are permanently immune compromised and Jansen already had Covid earlier in the year.

    • But Gore is so close. All he has to do is learn how hit, field, and throw. Minor details for a ballplayer. When they come up with the designated fielder, and designated thrower, to go along with the designated hitter maybe he’ll get a shot as a designated runner. We could have the designated fielder and designated thrower each on the field next to each other. And the designated hitter and designated runner could come up to the plate at the same time. Or we could just have complete ballplayers who can actually play the game. Gore doesn’t have the basic skills. Buh bye.
