Dodgers Roster: Tyson Miller Sent Outright To Triple-A Oklahoma City After Clearing Waivers

The Los Angeles Dodgers outrighted Tyson Miller to Triple-A Oklahoma City after he was designated for assignment and cleared waivers. He no longer is on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster.

Miller is remaining part of the Dodgers organization rather than refusing the Minor League assignment. He had the option to do so by virtue of previously being outrighted in his career.

The Dodgers DFA’d Miller last week as a corresponding move to recalling Ryan Pepiot from Oklahoma City for his start in the series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Pepiot has since been optioned to clear a roster spot for Shelby Miller’s return from the 60-day IL.

Tyson Miller has only appeared in two games for the Dodgers, pitching to a 4.50 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. His team debut came July 26 against the Toronto Blue Jays, when the right-hander allowed two runs over two innings of work.

Miller had better results in the second game of the Diamondbacks series, as he held them to just one hit over two scoreless innings.

In his Major League career, Miller is 2-2 with a 6.97 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, 18 strikeouts and 17 walks across 31 innings in 16 games (three starts) over parts of three seasons. He was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB Draft.

Miller made his MLB debut with the Cubs in 2020 and remained part of their organization through the end of May 2021 before getting DFA’d and claimed off waivers by the Texas Rangers. Miller spent a portion of the 2022 season with the Rangers, pitching to a 10.97 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in four games (two starts).

In his Minor League career, Miller has appeared in 156 games (100 starts), recording a 4.06 ERA and 578 strikeouts against 200 walks in 594.2 innings.

Miller returned to Dodgers

After beginning the 2023 season with the Brewers, Miller was traded to the Dodgers upon getting designated for assignment.

When the Dodgers DFA’d Miller in early August to reinstate Pepiot from the 60-day IL, he was claimed off waivers by the Mets. Miller’s lone appearance with the Mets was two scoreless innings against Pittsburgh Pirates on August 14 to earn a win.

The Dodgers reunited with the 28-year-old by claiming him off waivers after the Mets designated Miller for assignment.
