Dodgers' Jacob Rhame: Added to Dodgers' 40-man roster

Rhame was added to the Los Angeles 40-man roster on Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Rhame put together a solid season at Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2016, yielding a 3.29 ERA and striking out 70 in 63 innings, and should be ready to hit the majors some time next season when the Dodgers need an extra bullpen arm. This move protects him from the Rule 5 draft, in case another team felt Rhame was ready to spend a full season in the majors.
