Dodgers designate Josh Sborz for assignment

Move makes roster room for Trevor Bauer

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers-Workouts Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers designated pitcher Josh Sborz for assignment on Thursday, making room on the 40-man roster for Trevor Bauer, whose three-year, $102 million contract was made official.

Sborz allowed a run on two hits in 4⅓ innings last year, appearing in four games in relief for the Dodgers, with two strikeouts and a walk.

The Dodgers drafted Sborz in the second round in 2015 out of Virginia, after the right-hander was the Most Outstanding Player at the College World Series that season. In parts of two major league seasons, Sborz has a 6.08 ERA and 5.91 FIP in 11 games, all in relief, with nine strikeouts and five walks in 13⅓ innings.

After Thursday’s moves, the Dodgers have 24 pitchers and 16 position players on the 40-man roster.
