MLB: Seattle Mariners at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers made a move on Monday, signing right-handed reliever Zach McAllister to a minor-league deal.

It’s been an eventful month for McAllister, as this will be the third team he will be a part of in just three weeks.

On August 7, he was released by the Indians. In 41 games with Cleveland, the 30-year-old posted an ERA of 4.97. After being released, he was picked up by Detroit. His three appearances were enough, as they designated him for assignment a week after signing him.

In three appearances, the right-hander allowed 10 runs in just 3 13 innings of relief.

McAllister chose to elect free-agency, and was picked up by the Dodgers.

Beginning his career as a starter, McAllister made the switch to the bullpen in 2015. His best season came last year when he had a 2.61 ERA.

McAllister will report to OKC, and will likely see himself in a Dodgers uniform once September rolls around.
