Well, that didn't last long.

Left-hander David Huff was designated for assignment Wednesday, a day after he started for the Dodgers in a 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

Huff pitched four innings and was charged with four runs and seven hits.

Total time spent by Huff on the Dodgers major league roster: One day.


Huff's place on the 40-man roster was taken by Ryan Dennick, another left-hander.

The Dodgers claimed the 28-year-old Dennick off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. Dennick pitched in the major leagues for the first time last season, appearing in eight games and posting an 11.57 earned-run average.

Dennick was optioned to double-A Tulsa.
