2023 Los Angeles Dodgers Player Reviews: Tyler Cyr

Tyler Cyr was among the pitchers who contributed to the Los Angeles Dodgers last year after signing a Minor League contract with the team leading into 2023.

The 30-year-old began the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he struggled to the tune of a 4.86 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 15 games. Cyr joined the Dodgers when he had his contract selected on May 19 as the corresponding move to Andre Jackson being optioned to OKC.

Cyr appeared in back-to-back games against the St. Louis Cardinals, throwing a combined 1.2 innings and allowing just one hit while collecting two strikeouts in those appearances.

The Dodgers then placed Cyr on the 15-day injured list on May 23 due to a right shoulder impingement. He was later transferred to the 60-day IL and did not appear in another game at the big league level.

Cyr did manage to make four more appearances in the Minors, beginning with a scoreless outing for the Arizona Complex League (ACL) Dodgers on August 12. The right-hander finished the year by allowing four runs over three games with OKC.

Cyr was originally picked by the San Francisco Giants in the 10th round of the 2015 MLB Draft. He was granted free agency in November 2021 and went on to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Cyr made his MLB debut with the Phillies in 2022, but only appeared in one game before getting designated for assignment. He also pitched in 11 games for the Oakland Athletics that season.

2024 outlook

Cyr became a Minor League free agent after the Dodgers removed him from their 40-man roster at the end of the 2023 season. He will likely have to settle for another Minor League contract this offseason.
