The Dodgers are staying busy during the All-Star break, as they made a 40-man roster move on Tuesday. The club claimed right-handed pitcher Jimmie Sherfy off waivers from the Giants. In the move, LA designated right-handed pitcher Bobby Wahl for assignment.
Sherfy has appeared in 10 games this season with San Francisco. He’s posted a 4.22 ERA with a 5.32 FIP and 1.22 WHIP. In 10 2⁄3 innings he has nine strikeouts and four walks.
His career got off to a hot start in Arizona. From 2016-2017, he appeared in 26 games and posted an ERA of 1.00. In 27 innings he struck out 26 with 12 walks and had an ERA+ of 450.
Meanwhile, Wahl never got to appear in a game for the Dodgers. He was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on June 13, but had been with Oklahoma City. In two games he allowed three runs in only one inning of work. He exited a game back on July 6 after throwing just two pitches. He motioned to the dugout immediately after throwing the pitch, appearing to be in a great deal of pain. Not sure what the injury was, but his time with the organization is over.
If Sherfy is called up by the Dodgers, he has zero options remaining.
