Wheeler was designated for assignment Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The Dodgers claimed outfielder Peter O'Brien off waivers Sunday and subsequently designated Wheeler for assignment in order to open up a 40-man roster spot. Since being traded to the Dodgers from the Twins two weeks ago, Wheeler has posted a 10.38 ERA over 8.2 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
