Adam Liberatore: Undergoes knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and faces a six-to-eight week recovery, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Liberatore is currently a free agent after being released by the Dodgers earlier this month. He expects to be fully recovered and with a new organization prior to spring training. Across 17 appearances with Los Angeles in 2018, he posted a 2.77 ERA and 1.38 WHIP.

Adam Liberatore: Released by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was cut loose by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Liberatore was released by the organization after being designated for assignment last week. He logged a 2.77 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 12:8 K:BB across 13 innings of relief for Los Angeles this year. He will look to latch on with another club before the end of the 2018 campaign.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Friday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Liberatore was cast off the 40-man roster in order to make room for the recently acquired Ryan Madson, who was traded to the Dodgers from Washington on Friday. In 17 appearances with the big-league team this year, Liberatore has posted a 2.77 ERA and 1.38 WHIP but hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since June. He will be subject to waivers, but is set to remain with Triple-A Oklahoma City if he goes unclaimed.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

Liberatore was the casualty to make room for the return of Clayton Kershaw (back). In 13 innings for the Dodgers this season, Liberatore has a 2.77 ERA, though his 22.2 percent strikeout rate is mediocre and his 14.8 percent walk rate is poor, suggesting that he was getting fairly lucky.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Headed to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

Liberatore figures to be used in a relief role during his next stint in the big leagues. He's posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with eight strikeouts across 12 appearances out of the bullpen.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was optioned down to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Liberatore spent the last month at the major-league level, appearing in 12 games out of the Dodgers bullpen. During those outings, he logged a 3.38 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in eight innings of relief. In a corresponding move, Tony Cingrani (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Returns from ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (ankle) gave up one run on one hit while recording just one out in Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

He was unavailable for three days with an ankle injury but was brought in to begin the bottom of the seventh inning. Liberatore promptly gave up a double to Yadiel Rivera before being relieved by JT Chargois one batter later. Liberatore has a 3.38 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and eight strikeouts in eight innings this season.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Unavailable with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Liberatore was unavailable Saturday against the Reds due to an ankle injury, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Roberts didn't provide specifics regarding the injury, so the severity of the issue remains unclear. Consider Liberatore day-to-day for now, while Scott Alexander will serve as the primary left-hander in the bullpen until he's healthy again.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Liberatore will join the big club to offer an extra arm out of the bullpen with Rich Hill (finger) landing on the disabled list. The 30-year-old has struck out nine batters through 6.1 scoreless innings with Oklahoma City so far this season. He should work in middle relief during his time with the Dodgers.

March 20, 2018 12:52 AM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was shipped to the minor leagues Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Liberatore made seven spring training appearances, giving up six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven across 6.2 innings. He failed to earn a spot at the back end of the Dodgers' bullpen, so he'll head to Triple-A Oklahoma City where he'll start the year.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Back in game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (forearm) struck out one batter in an inning of work Monday against the Rangers.

The southpaw was shut down last September due to left forearm tightness that lingered for much of the season. It seems like everything is back in working order, especially after the uneventful spring debut. Liberatore can now shift his focus on winning a low-leverage bullpen role in the big leagues.

September 8, 2017 07:36 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (forearm) has been shut down for the season, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Liberatore had already made a few rehab appearances for Triple-A Oklahoma City, but apparently his progress wasn't sufficient enough for the Dodgers to believe he could be a contributor beyond the stretch and beyond. Liberatore posted a sharp 3.38 ERA with a 47:17 K:BB over 42.2 innings in 2016, so even if he doesn't have a future with the Dodgers, some major league team will likely have need for his services if he can get healthy for 2018.

August 29, 2017 03:24 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Shifting rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (forearm) is expected to make his next rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Oklahoma City, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

It will mark the third rehab outing of Liberatore's assignment, after he previously tossed scoreless innings with the Dodgers' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate and High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Since Liberatore has been shut down since late May with left forearm tightness, he'll likely make multiple appearances with Oklahoma City before the Dodgers activate him from the 60-day disabled list at some point in September.

August 27, 2017 10:52 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Moves rehab to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers transferred Liberatore's (forearm) rehab assignment to High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Liberatore had previously kicked off his rehab assignment with a one-inning appearance Thursday with the Dodgers' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate, marking the left-hander's first game action in nearly three months. It's expected that Liberatore will make one or two appearances with Rancho Cucamonga before moving up to a higher-level affiliate and, eventually, the Dodgers at some point in September.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Moves to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

No news has come forth as to how close Liberatore is to returning to action, and given that he's already been on the DL for nearly 60 days, this move made a lot of sense as it allowed the Dodgers to clear a roster spot for the recently acquired Luke Farrell.

Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers placed Liberatore on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, retroactive to May 31, with left forearm tightness.

The southpaw flew back to Los Angeles to undergo testing on his elbow because he was experiencing the tightness. Liberatore's timetable to return is murky considering the nature of this injury.

June 1, 2017 12:00 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Returning to LA for exam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore is traveling back to Los Angeles on Thursday to be examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. He's having tests done on his elbow, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Liberatore came off the disabled list May 25 after recovering from a groin injury but now is facing another absence with a different issue. The club should provide an update on their left-handed middle reliever in the next few days.

May 25, 2017 09:24 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Comes off DL on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore (groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday.

The Dodgers fortified their bullpen depth by activating Liberatore after they placed Luis Avilan on the DL with left triceps soreness. Liberatore, who notched a 3.38 ERA over 42.2 innings last season, figures to fill a left-handed specialist role now that he's back with the team. He held lefties to a .171 average in 2016.

May 10, 2017 09:24 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a left groin strain.

As expected, Liberatore was officially placed on the disabled list to clear room on the roster for recently recalled Brett Eibner. The 29-year-old has allowed one run across 1.1 innings (two games) with the big club this season, though he'll likely head back to Triple-A once he's eligible to return.

May 11, 2017 08:48 PM
Dodgers' Adam Liberatore: Likely headed for DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liberatore is expected to be placed on the 10-day disabled list with a groin strain, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

While the move isn't official yet, Scott Van Slyke and Brett Eibner were seen in the clubhouse before Wednesday's game, signaling the corresponding moves for Liberatore and Andrew Toles (knee) heading to the DL. It's unclear how Liberatore will be sidelined, though he'll likely head back to Triple-A once activated. He's currently in the middle of his second stint with the big club this season, and he's allowed one run across 1.1 innings (two appearances).
