After being sent to Albuquerque to begin the season, free agent signee Peter Moylan finally joins the Dodgers relief corps. As you may recall, Moylan signed a minor league contract with the team in February. In exchange, Javy Guerra gets sent back down. Per the Dodgers press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers today selected the contract of right-handed reliever Peter Moylan (#41) from Triple-A Albuquerque after optioning right-hander Javy Guerra to Albuquerque following last night's game. To make room on the 40-man roster, the club transferred left-hander Scott Elbert to the 60-day disabled list.Check out my previous post from February that focused on the incredible tattoo artwork that he has, here. BTW, the pic above is a fantasy card I made of Moylan back in February.
Moylan last pitched on Tuesday at Memphis, striking out one in a scoreless inning, and is 2-1 with two saves and a 3.52 ERA in 17 appearances with the Isotopes this season. Moylan, 34, posted a 1.80 ERA in eight games with the Braves last year and is 20-9 with four saves and a 2.59 ERA in 295 career relief appearances all with Atlanta from 2006-2012.
Guerra made nine relief appearances with the Dodgers after his recall on April 30, posting a 6.75 ERA (8 ER/10.2 IP).
