Jacob Rhame made his major league debut in 2017. But it didn’t come with the Dodgers.
The Dodgers added Rhame to the 40-man roster last November, and the right-hander posted a 4.31 ERA in 41 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City, with 55 strikeouts and 10 walks in 48 innings.
He had just two walks in a 26-game stretch from May 16 to Aug. 9 in the minors, with 35 strikeouts during that span.
But he never got the call to the majors while with the Dodgers, while 18 others pitched in relief for the Dodgers before Rhame was traded.
Rhame was the player to be named later to complete the Dodgers’ trade for Curtis Granderson, getting sent to the Mets on Aug. 20.
Rhame made his major league debut on Sept. 2 for the Mets and in nine games over the final month allowed nine runs in nine innings for a 9.00 ERA.
Stats: 4.31 ERA in 41 games, 55 K, 10 BB in 48 IP with Triple-A OKC
Game of the year
While still in the Dodgers organization, Rhame recorded a two-inning save on Apr. 16 to close out an Oklahoma City win over the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals).
Rhame is on the Mets’ 40-man roster and has two option years remaining.
