Alberto Callaspo designated for assignment by the Dodgers

Alberto Callaspo is the odd man out in the Dodgers’ never-ending roster churn, as the veteran infielder was designated for assignment and dropped from the 40-man roster.

Acquired from the Braves in May as part of the Juan Uribe trade, Callaspo hit just .260 with zero homers and a .637 OPS in 60 games for the Dodgers.

He’s not a true utility infielder in that he can’t play shortstop and typically isn’t trusted to play second base. And he’s not a particularly good corner infield option because Callaspo has a lifetime .693 OPS.
