The Dodgers parted ways with pitcher Ryan Buchter on Monday, reports the Orange County Register. Buchter had a 1.65 ERA with 39 strikeouts in 32 2/3 innings at Triple-A. He also made the All-Star team at Triple-A, but had an out clause in his contract.
Dodgers top pitching prospect Julio Urias has been assigned to minor-league camp as a part of the team's first wave of cuts this spring, reports MLB.com. Urias, along with Chris Anderson, Ryan Buchter and Josh Ravin were all sent down. Although Urias is considered the top prospect for Los Angeles, he will begin his season in the minors. "Our standard answer right now is that we won't see him (in 2015). He's 18," manager Don Mattingly said last month. "Nobody wants to retard his development at all. He's moving forward. He had (87 2/3) innings last year. He'll get more this year. There's a plan to continue to build his innings and get him ready for the big leagues."
The Braves announced a pair of roster moves Friday. The team sent pitcher Ryan Buchter outright to Triple-A Gwinnett and pitcher Carlos Perez outright to Double-A Mississippi.
The Braves optioned pitcher Ryan Buchter to Triple-A Gwinnett after Tuesday's game to clear a roster spot for Wednesday starter Alex Wood. Buchter made just one appearance while with the Braves, striking out one and walking one during a scoreless inning Friday to pick up a win in his major-league debut. He returns to a 3.79 ERA and 35:21 K:BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings with Gwinnett.
Left-hander Ryan Buchter has been promoted by the Braves from Triple-A Gwinnett to take the place of fellow pitcher Gavin Floyd, who has been placed on the disabled list. Buchter could be simply holding the spot warm for Alex Wood, who is being stretched out with the same team in working his way back into the starting rotation for Atlanta.
