The Dodgers have signed a couple of veterans to minor league deals.
The first is SS Juan Castro. He originally began his career with the Dodgers by signing in 1991. He spent last season with the Reds and Orioles, combining for a blistering .193 AVG with 2 HR and 16 RBI. Damn, now those are some big numbers!
The other is P Tanyon Sturtz, a Joe Torre favorite. He was with the Dodgers last year in August, giving up 1 hit and no runs in 2.1 IP. His reward? Designated for assignment after 3 appearances. Ouch.
I've got to be honest here. There's just nothing to talk about lately, so this is the best I can do. Manny is still staying put, and Jon Garland ended up with the Diamondbacks. Hopefully soon I can write about something a little (ok, a lot) more exciting than this.
