Dodgers claim J.T. Chargois

The Los Angeles Dodgers today claimed right-handed pitcher J.T. Chargois from the Minnesota Twins and placed left-handed pitcher Julio Urías on the 60-day disabled list.

Chargois, 27, has pitched in 25 Major League games with Minnesota, all in 2016 out of the bullpen, going 1-1 with a 4.70 ERA. The Louisiana native missed most of last season due to injury, appearing in just two games. In 2016, he was also 2-1 with 16 saves and a 1.35 ERA (7 ER/46.2 IP) in 39 games for Triple-A Rochester of the International League and Double-A Chattanooga in the Southern League.
