Debut Details
September 29, in a 9-1 loss to the Rockies. Inserted as a pinch-runner for Corey Seager with two outs in the eighth inning, he advanced to second on a single by Justin Turner but was stranded when Cody Bellinger grounded out. He remained in the game in the top of the ninth, taking over for Curtis Granderson in left field but did not have a play on defense.

Player Notes
Drafted out of Ithaca College, the speedy infielder has a solid bat but was summoned from his upstate New York home on the Friday of the final regular-season weekend for his pure ability to burn on the bases as the Dodgers considered adding him to the post-season roster as a pinch-running specialist. In 2016, he combined between Rancho Cucamong (High A) and Tulsa to bat .285 with six home runs, 52 RBIs and 24 steals along with 25 doubles, after swiping 41 bases between Lansing (Class A/Blue Jays) and Rancho Cucamonga before and after his mid-season trade, Even in short-season action, his speed was on display, as he stole 32 bases in 67 games at Vancouver (Short-Season A) in 2014 and has posted a career .293/.372/.402 slash thanks in part to his ability to use his speed to convert hits into extra bases. With his appearance, he became the 262nd player to make his MLB debut in 2017.
