Dodgers designated itinerant righty for assignment Tuesday
By Joey Nowak
Preston Guilmet, who already has made his way around the league this year, may be on the move again. The 27-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Tuesday after less than two weeks with the club.
Los Angeles claimed Guilmet off waivers from the Rays on July 10. Guilmet did not appear in the big leagues with the Dodgers, but he made three appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City, allowing one run in three innings of relief.
Guilmet has only appeared in the Majors with the Rays this season (with three appearances spanning 5 1/3 innings), but he has worn plenty of uniforms. He has been traded, designated, claimed and sent down 13 times this year. And that comes after going through 20 such moves last year.
Before Guilmet was designated by the Rays on July 7, he appeared for Tampa Bay and its Triple-A affiliate in Durham, N.C. Before that, the Rays claimed him from the Blue Jays on May 13.
That makes four teams -- Toronto's Triple-A Buffalo affiliate, Durham, Oklahoma City and Tampa Bay -- this year alone for the journeyman.
Guilmet has pitched for three Major League clubs since 2013 (the Orioles last year and the Indians this year), and has contributed to plenty more Minor League clubs.
After getting his start and working his way through the Indians' MInor League system, Guilmet was dealt to Baltimore in April 2014, and he also appeared with Triple-A Norfolk. While with the Blue Jays, he also played with Buffalo. And he was also with Pittsburgh from Oct. 3 to Dec. 23, 2014.
