The Los Angeles Dodgers have added a little bit of depth to their pitching staff today as they have agree’d to Minor League contracts with three players.

Right now the Dodgers are currently in talks with Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw about a huge contract extension.  Nothing has come out of that yet and may not happen for awhile. They managed to bring back Brian Wilson and J.P. Howell to their bullpen. Which is great.

They really wanted both of those men back and were able to get think re-signed.

Two guys aren’t listed in that Tweet, but have been signed. Right handed pitcher Henry Sosa spent the 2013 season in the Korean Baseball Organization. The 28 year old posted a 5.47 ERA, 1.60 WHIp and 143/68 K/BB ratio in 164 2/3 innings.

Sosa spent a year with the Houston Astros back in 2011 where he started 10 games. He posted a 5.23 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP while being tagged with 31 earned runs through 53.1 innings of work. His last Major League outing was on September 27th in a 13-6 loss against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Left handed Fu-Te Ni is a relief pitcher who spent time with the Detroit Tigers back in 2009 and 2010. He appeared in a total 58 games and pitched 54 complete innings. His ERA in 2009 wasn’t all that bad, it was actually pretty great. Ni posted a 2.61 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP before being lit up in 2010.

Ni hasn’t seen Major League action since then.

A guy who was mentioned in that Tweet is lefty Jack McGeary. He’s a 24 year old pitcher who spent time with the Red Sox farm system in 2013. He posted a 4.98 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 30/16 K/BB ratio in just 21 2/3 innings of work between Low and Class-A affiliates.

    These pitchers all suck. I think the Dodgers are picking these guys up to fill out the A, AA and AAA staffs when the big club raids them of their best relievers starting in spring training. Colletti is doing a terrible job of hiring new good relief.

    BTW there’s no contraction in “agree’d”. Every blogger who doesn’t know when not to use apostrophes should be sentenced to another term in 2nd grade, or maybe take it for the first time. You dumbos have no idea how annoying your lazy typing is.

      I’m not sure why you would explain what Colletti is clearly doing (filling out the minor league pitching staffs) and then complain about the supposed “terrible job” he’s doing getting relievers. While I loath The Beard, Brian Wilson looked great down the stretch, and JP Howell is a solid left-hander and gives us an option behind Paco Rodriguez (who struggled down the stretch).

      I’m not a fan of Colleti’s constant signing of former-quality relievers like Marmol. But none of the signings you address are bad ones. Even the minor leaguers have upside. Ni had wicked stuff for a short time when he was up in the Majors.
