ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Dodgers have selected the contract of veteran right-handed reliever Ryan Brasier in an attempt to bolster their beleaguered bullpen.

The Dodgers also optioned left-hander Bryan Hudson to Triple-A Oklahoma City and designated right-hander Andre Jackson for assignment Tuesday before opening a two-game Freeway Series against the Los Angeles Angels.

Brasier signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on June 4 and made two appearances for Oklahoma City. He made 20 appearances with a 7.29 ERA this season for the Boston Red Sox, his employer for the previous five seasons.

Brasier began his major league career with seven appearances for the Angels in 2013, but didn’t get back to the majors again until 2018, when he was an important part of Boston’s World Series championship team with a 1.04 ERA over nine postseason appearances.

The Dodgers (39-33) have been hurt repeatedly this season by their poor bullpen, which has the majors’ second-highest ERA at 5.04. Only five teams have fewer total saves than the Dodgers’ 15.
