Venable was designated for assignment Thursday.

Venable's time with the Dodgers appears to have run its course after the veteran struggled to make a difference as a left-handed bat off the bench. He slashed just .056/.105/.111 with five strikeouts in 18 at-bats this season before being DFA'd on Thursday. He'll now be subject to waivers and could be picked up by a team looking to add a left-handed bat.
