The Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned outfielder James Outman to Triple-A.


Official announcement by the Dodgers via X:

The Dodgers activated OF Jason Heyward from the injured list, recalled OF Miguel Vargas and RHP Ricky Vanasco, optioned OF James Outman and LHP Nick Ramirez and placed IF Max Muncy on the injured list with a right oblique strain.


This wasn’t a very surprising move. The Dodgers are trying to get Outman going again like he did last year. In his rookie season which was last year, James Outman impressed a ton of people. He finished 3rd in National League Rookie of the Year voting.


James Outman is off to a really tough start in his second year in the bigs. He is getting playing time, he’s just not producing at a high level. In 36 starts, James Outman is slashing .147/.250/.266, with just 3 home runs, 10 RBI’s, 2 SB’s, and a .516 OPS.


There are plenty of times where a player who is still in the early stages of their career like James Outman is just struggles after getting off to a good start in their career. The hope is that James Outman can find his swing again and come right back up to the majors and perfom well again. The talent is there for Outman, he just has to put it all together again.
