Schlichting demoted to make room for Dotel

Schlichting demoted to make room for Dotel

|
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Dodgers cleared the one roster spot they needed after their Saturday flurry of acquisitions by optioning reliever Travis Schlichting to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Schlichting was in his third stint with the Dodgers this year and has been effective, with a 2.86 ERA in 13 games. But he essentially was squeezed out of a spot by the arrival of former Pittsburgh closer Octavio Dotel.

Roster spots for newcomers Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot were created by trading away pitcher James McDonald and second baseman Blake DeWitt.

Dotel will wear uniform No. 26, Theriot No. 13 and Lilly No. 29.
