Los Angeles Dodgers release Dallas McPherson

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released infielder Dallas McPherson.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released infielder Dallas McPherson, according to MLB Trade Rumors.

After signing a minor league contract that included an invitation to major league spring training with the Dodgers in December, McPherson was re-assigned to minor league camp earlier this month.

McPherson was formerly a top prospect in the Los Angeles Angels' minor league system. The Halos selected him in the second round of the 2001 MLB Draft, and he was considered one of the top 20 prospects in all of baseball entering the 2005 season.

Unfortunately for McPherson, his success in the minors hasn't translated at the major league level. He showed flashes of power early in his time at the majors, but he couldn't reach base at a consistent clip. He last appeared in the bigs in 2011 with the Chicago White Sox, and he owns a career batting line of .241/.292/.446 with 21 doubles and 18 home runs over 414 plate appearances.

Over parts of 10 seasons in the minors, McPherson owns a career batting line of .289/.370/.563. Along with the Dodgers, the 32-year-old has spent time with the Angels, White Sox, Miami Marlins, San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates.
