The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned J.T. Chargois to Minor League camp on Wednesday, leaving 36 players in big league camp, including including 14 infielders/outfielders, 19 pitchers and three catchers. The move comes two days after fellow right-handed relief pitcher Jaime Schultz was also optioned.

Chargois has appeared in seven Cactus League games thus far, going 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 0.90 WHIP while holding opponents to a .167 batting average. He additionally has six strikeouts against two walks over 6.2 innings pitched.

Chargois had a string of four scoreless appearances that was snapped in Tuesday’s loss to the Cleveland Indians. He entered in the seventh inning and promptly issued a leadoff walk followed by allowing a two-run home run. Ka’ai Tom doubled, and Chargois was removed after retiring the next two batters faced.

He was a valuable contributor out of the bullpen last season for the Dodgers, going 2-4 with a 3.33 ERA, 3.87 FIP and 1.27 WHIP in 39 games. Unlike 2018, Chargois now appears likely to begin the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Meanwhile, the outlook for the Dodgers bullpen continues to take shape. Scott Alexander, Stetson Allie, Caleb Ferguson, Dylan Floro, Yimi Garcia, Kenley Jansen, Julio Urias and Kevin Quackenbush are the relief pitchers still in camp with the team.
