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.
