Dodgers Spring Training Roster: Darien Núñez Optioned, Beau Burrows Re-Assigned To Minor League Camp

The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned Darien Núñez and re-assigned Beau Burrows to Minor League camp for a third round of Spring Training roster cuts.

Burrows was among the several players to sign a Minor League contract with the Dodgers during the offseason. He was expected to start their Cactus League opener, but Clayton Kershaw wound up taking the mound instead.

Burrows did pitch in relief against the Milwaukee Brewers, throwing two perfect innings and collecting a pair of strikeouts in the process. That has been his only appearance thus far in Spring Training.

The Dodgers signed Núñez out of Cuba in 2018. The left-hander made his MLB debut with the team last season and went 0-1 with an 8.22 ERA in six games (one start) for the Dodgers last year. He was much more effective in the Minors, going a combined 7-0 with a 2.38 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 32 games between Tulsa and OKC.

Núñez has thrown two scoreless innings of two Spring Training games.

Burrows and Núñez remain eligible to appear in Cactus League games as Minor League callups moving forward.
