Brandon League released by the Dodgers

Brandon League, who passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment last week, has now been released by the Dodgers.

Los Angeles is on the hook for his entire $7.5 million salary as part of a three-year, $22.5 million deal handed out by the old front office regime, so now that League is available to sign with any team for any price there figures to be some interest.

League hasn’t pitched in the majors this season because of a shoulder injury, but he threw 11 innings with a 0.82 ERA and 8/2 K/BB ratio in the minors while rehabbing. And last season he appeared in 63 games for the Dodgers, throwing 63 innings with a 2.57 ERA and zero home runs allowed.
