Dodgers release ex-all star Koss

Paul Koss, a USC product, who was a Cal League all-star for the 66ers in 2008, has been released by the Dodgers from the 66ers.

Koss went 3-2 with a 3.50 ERA and 14 saves for the Sixers two years ago, earning a promotion to Double-A Chattanooga last year. He was 0-0 with two saves an a 3.00 ERA in 15 appearances, but was placed on the disabled list on June 28 and missed the rest of the season with right shoulder soreness.

He was sent back to the Sixers to start 2010, and never regained that form. Koss was the closer to start the season, but never regained his form from 2008. He was 1-5 with a 5.93 ERA and only two saves in eight opportunities for the Sixers. At 25, Koss is a little on the old side, but could get another shot with an independent league team if another organization doesn’t pick him up.

The Sixers activated LHP Geison Aguasviva off the disabled list to replace Koss.
