The Los Angeles Dodgers came into this offseason with big aspirations, but to this point, they have only made minor upgrades to their pitching staff.
The theme of the Dodgers’ two free-agent acquisitions has been low-risk, high-upside, signing both Blake Treinen and Jimmy Nelson to one-year contracts with incentives built-in.
Both Treinen and Nelson have pitched at an All-Star level in their respective careers but are coming off poor years due to injury. It was recently reported that the Dodgers could make another similar signing with Danny Salazar as a potential target.
It appears that they have made indeed another low-risk signing, although it is not Salazar.
