Tyler Olson was on the Dodgers' 40-man roster for 19 days, and he was in the organization for less than four weeks. But he indirectly contributed to the 2016 team.
What went right
The Dodgers acquired Olson from the Mariners on Dec. 18, 2015 for cash considerations.
Olson was designated for assignment on Jan. 6, 2016 to make room on the 40-man roster for Brandon Beachy, then on Jan. 12 Olson was traded with infielder Ronald Torreyes to the Yankees for minor league corner man Rob Segedin, who contributed to the Dodgers in August and September.
What went wrong
Olson ended up getting designated for assignment by five different teams in an eight-month span. It started with the Mariners in December 2015, then the Dodgers, followed by the Yankees, the Royals, then the Indians.
Game of the year
Olson pitched in one major league game in 2016, on April 15 for the Yankees. He allowed two runs in 2⅔ innings to the Mariners, his old team.
Olson is in the Indians' organization, off the 40-man roster.
