LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers continue to tinker at the edges of their 40-man roster rather than make any headline-grabbing moves this offseason. They acquired lefty reliever Tyler Olson from the Seattle Mariners Friday for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Olson had been designated for assignment.
Olson, 26, went 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in 11 relief outings for Seattle. He had a 4.47 ERA in Triple-A Tacoma. The Dodgers made room on their 40-man roster by designating pitcher Daniel Reynolds for assignment. They had claimed Reynolds off waivers from the Angels just 11 days ago.
