A look back at Preston Guilmet, who spent 11 days on the Dodgers' 40-man roster in 2015.

What went right

The Dodgers claimed the right-hander off waivers from Tampa Bay on July 10, and optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Guilmet struck out four and walked one in three innings, allowing a run on two hits in three games with OKC.

Guilmet did pitch in the majors in 2015, his third straight season pitching in the majors and with four different teams, including two teams this year. But his MLB appearances in 2015 weren't with the Dodgers.

What went wrong

Guilmet allowed a run in his first appearance with Oklahoma City on July 16.

The Dodgers designated Guilmet for assignment on July 21, and he was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on July 31.

2015 particulars

Age: 27

Stats: 3.00 ERA, 4 K, 1 BB, 3 IP in Triple-A Oklahoma City

Game of the year

July 19 was Guilmet's third appearance in four days with Oklahoma City, and would end up being his final appearance in the Dodgers organization. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning with three strikeouts, including whiffing Hanser Alberto and Joey Gallo, both of whom played in the majors in 2015. Oklahoma City won that game, 7-6, in 12 innings.

Roster status

Guilmet was sent outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs by Milwaukee on Sept. 8, and is now one of several minor league free agents.
