Alberto Callaspo designated for assignment by the Dodgers

9 Comments

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.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
