LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers announced on Saturday that left-handed pitcher David Huff cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Huff accepted the assignment.
Huff was designated for assignment on Wednesday, removing him from the 40-man roster one day after allowing four runs in four innings in a spot start against the Mariners, a game eventually won by the Dodgers in the ninth inning.
With over three years of major league service time, Huff, 30, had the right to refuse an outright assignment to the minors but he accepted, and will rejoin his Oklahoma City teammates, with whom he started the season.
"He was disappointed, but hopefully he understood. It's kind of the same with Darwin [Barney] in a way. David's been around a little bit," manager Don Mattingly said on Wednesday. "We really like him. He has a chance to take part in what we do. We hope that he wants to be here. We know he's got to go through waivers, but selfishly we hope he stays with us."
Huff has pitched in one game for Oklahoma City this season, allowing a run in three innings in relief, with four strikeouts and a walk.
