Dodgers' right-hander Brandon Beachy will stay in the organization after being designated for assignment over the weekend, according to an industry source. Beachy cleared waivers and then accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City instead of electing free agency.
Beachy, who was signed by the Dodgers as a free agent during the offseason while recovering from Tommy John surgery, made two starts for Los Angeles, allowing seven earned runs on eight innings of work before being replaced in the rotation by deadline additions Mat Latos and Alex Wood. Los Angeles suddenly has a deep rotation of Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, Brett Anderson, Latos and Wood with Mike Bolsinger and Carlos Frias as depth options, leaving Beachy vulnerable to a roster casualty.
Beachy, 28, will continue to work on his rehab at Triple-A and may be called up in September if he is back on the-man roster. The ex-Brave is controllable on a $3 million team option for next season, as well.
