Conlon, 24, made his major league debut with New York this season, getting tagged for seven runs on 12 hits in 5⅔ innings in two starts. He also posted a 6.58 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas, with 33 strikeouts and 10 walks in 39⅔ innings in his eight minor league starts.
The left-hander, who was drafted in the 13th round in 2015 out of the University of San Diego, had a 3.38 ERA in 136 innings in Double-A in 2017, including holding left-handed batters to .252/.273/.358 against him.
This season lefties are hitting .397/.462/.621 against Conlon in the majors and minors combined.
Conlon was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday.
Conlon will head to Triple-A Oklahoma City. This is his first year on a 40-man roster, and has two option years remaining after 2018.
A huge thank you to the Mets organization for everything over the past few years, especially the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the Major Leagues. I’m excited for this next chapter with the #Dodgers and can’t wait to get started!— PJ Conlon (@pjconlon29) June 2, 2018
To make room for Conlon on the 40-man roster the Dodgers transferred Hyun-jin Ryu to the 60-day disabled list. This doesn’t change anything for Ryu, who is expected out until after the All-Star break after suffering a left groin strain. This just means the earliest date he is eligible to be activated is July 2.
