Former West Texas A&M All-American Marshall Kasowski has been selected to the player pool by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the upcoming 2020 Major League Baseball season scheduled to begin in late July.
For this year, each organization can establish a player pool of up to 60 players that can be used throughout the season. Only those players will be allowed to participate in summer training camp starting July 1st. Active rosters will allow up to 30 players to start the season, then down to 28 after two weeks and then to the final 26-man active roster two weeks after that. All players added to teams’ 40-man or active rosters must first be added to the 60-man player pools.
In order to mitigate travel, the 60-game regular season schedule would include 10 games for each team against its four divisional opponents, along with 20 games against the opposite league’s corresponding geographical division.
Kasowski made 27 appearances for the Tulsa Drillers of the Texas League during the 2019 season, posting a 2.45 ERA over 29.1 innings of work. The Conroe, Texas product was 4-3 on the season including a pair of saves as he allowed just eight earned runs on 17 hits with 46 strikeouts for an opposing batting average of .162.
