LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have been busy at the winter meetings, with three reported transactions in various stages of reported completion. But the first official move from Nashville announced on Monday was claiming right-handed pitcher Danny Reynolds off waivers from the Angels.

Reynolds, who turns 25 in May, had a 4.57 ERA in 43 games for Double-A Arkansas in 2015, with 10 saves, 50 strikeouts and 28 walks in 43⅓ innings.

The 2009 sixth-round draft pick was a starter in 2012-2013, when he put up a 4.83 ERA, a 17.6-percent strikeout rate and 9.3-percent walk rate.

In 2014-2015, all 90 of Reynolds' appearances have been in relief, where he put up a 3.59 ERA, a 24.8-percent strikeout rate and 11.2-percent walk rate. Then-Halos general manager Jerry Dipoto told Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register in March that a switch to relief bumped up Reynolds' fastball from the low 90s to mid-90s mph.

Reynolds was added to the Angels' 40-man roster in November 2014, and he used an option year in 2015. He has two option years remaining.

With the addition of Reynolds, the Dodgers now have 37 players on their 40-man roster.
