The Los Angeles Dodgers added a pair of relief pitchers on minor league contracts this week, signing righties BJ Rosenberg and Ramon Troncoso, per several reports.
Per Eric Stephen of True Blue LA, "it is unknown whether either one has an invitation to major league spring training camp, something far more likely for Rosenberg, who has spent parts of each of the last three seasons in the majors with the Phillies."
Rosenberg, 29, made just 13 appearances for the Phillies in 2014, allowing a staggering 10 runs and 20 hits in 12 innings, with seven walks and nine strikeouts. He didn't exactly figure things out at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, posting a 6.63 ERA with 37 baserunners allowed in 19 innings, despite 17 strikeouts.
You may remember Troncoso from his days as one of former Dodgers manager Joe Torre's favorite bullpen options in 2008 and 2009. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2013, and posted a 4.30 ERA with 33 strikeouts and 11 walks in 44 innings for Triple-A Omaha of the Royals' farm system in 2014.
