Pitcher Brandon Beachy, pitcher Chin-Hui Tsao, outfielder Chris Heisey and first baseman/outfielder Mike Morse have been designated for assignment in a flurry of moves designed to clear room on their 40-man roster following the three-team megatrade completed earlier today.
Beachy, Tsao and Heisey were all at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Morse was one of the players acquired in the trade that brought Alex Wood, Mat Latos, Jim Johnson, Luis Avilan and minor league utilityman Jose Peraza to Los Angeles.
Per MLB rules, the Dodgers were required to amend their 40-man roster today. They won’t have to adjust their 25-man roster until the new players report, which could be as late as tomorrow afternoon.
The Dodgers play the Angels at 7 p.m. Friday. The non-waiver trade deadline is 1 p.m.
