The Dodgers made the decision to cut Tony Wolters loose this month. The veteran catcher was brought up to make up for the loss of Austin Barnes, who went on the family emergency list and had to be away from the team. Wolters got a few at-bats and didn’t do anything with them.
As a result, the Dodgers designated him for assignment and cut him loose when Barnes came back. That made him a free agent and he could have signed with another team. But it sounds like he will be returning to the organization again.
Wolters signed a minor league deal to return to the Dodgers and is back with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He accumulated 193 plate appearances in OKC and put together a mediocre .216/.311/.269 slash line.
