The Dodgers signed right-handed pitcher Kevin Quackenbush to a minor-league contract on May 1. He spent majority of the season in Triple-A, but he had one appearance with the Dodgers on August 8.
LA selected his contract and added him to the 40-man roster on August 7. Quackenbush came out of the bullpen on August 8 against the Angels. His stint was brief, as he recorded only one out. He faced four batters and allowed three hits, allowing a run to score.
Quackenbush was designated for assignment a few days later and then was signed back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
He had a pretty solid 2021 campaign in the minors, as Quackenbush was OKC’s closer for majority of the season. In 45 games, he posted a 1.45 ERA and was 23/25 on save opportunities. In 43 2⁄3 innings, he had 48 strikeouts and 22 walks. Quackenbush didn’t allow a run through his first 24 outings. He was also 14/14 on save opportunities until he blew his first save in August.
Stats: 1⁄3 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 K
Game of the year
Quackenbush had a Dodgers debut to forget, as he allowed one run on three hits in his lone game of the season. He was only able to record one out.
