Gagne Among Early Cuts
Former Cy Young winner Eric Gagne’s comeback will continue at Minor League camp after he was among the seven players the Dodgers moved out of the Major League clubhouse.
In addition to Gagne, the Dodgers optioned pitched Scott Elbert and reassigned pitcher Scott Dohmann, outfielder Michael Restovich and infielder John Lindsey. Elbert had been in the running for the fifth starter job, but had been slowed by a sore shoulder and a 20.25 ERA.
The Dodgers also returned left-handed Rule 5 pick Armando Zerpa to the Boston organization. — Ken Gurnick
