The Dodgers made a move right before the September 1st deadline. LA traded minor league catcher Stevie Berman for Twins LHP Andrew Vasquez. We break down the deal and what it means for LA. Plus, LA selects the contract of lefty reliever, Andrew Vasquez and option RHP Ryan Meisinger to Triple-A while transferring LHP Scott Alexander to the 60-day IL, effectively ending his season.
As Brook Smith noted yesterday, Vasquez has pitched well in Triple-A this year. The lefty has recorded 68 strikeouts over 42.1 innings of work. He should be looked at as more of a depth piece down the stretch but, with the struggles of Victor Gonzalez this season, Andrew could be given a real shot to be a key left-handed arm out of the bullpen.
Vasquez hasn’t had much luck at the big league level over his career (6 earned runs in 5 innings pitched), but his 2.42 ERA over 169 minor league appearances tells a different story.
