The Dodgers plucked the 2012 second round pick off waivers from the Twins last season. He gave them 32 innings of decent relief as he held the opposition to a .241 batting average. Chargois was especially tough on right-handed hitters holding them a .205 batting average against him. He features a mid 90’s fastball with movement, a changeup, and a biting slider.

With the OKC Dodgers this season he has been solid posting an ERA of 2.25 and keeping the opposition down to a .235 average. With the bullpen currently in disarray, Chargois could get another look since he is another reliever with above-average stuff. He can be classified as another stealthy Friedman pick up as Scott Alexander and Dylan Floro were.
Bonus: Marshall Kasowski
As Dodgers Way writer Jacob Rudner profiled here, Marshall Kasowski could be the next big pitcher to come out of the Dodgers’ farm system. Although his fastball isn’t in the upper 90’s on a consistent basis, he is very deceptive with his over the top delivery. Combined with his rising movement, he is a fastball-heavy pitcher who has been dominant in every stop of the minors.
This season, Kasowski has a 2.31 ERA with the Tulsa Drillers and allows an average of .167. Just as the Dodgers have in Sheffield, Kasowski is another Double-A prospect who could make the jump to the big leagues as the Dodgers look to shore up the late innings.
The Dodgers have a ton of talented relievers in their farm system, so before seeking outside options they may want to give some internal options a chance over the next month.
