Four More Free Agents Enter Dodgers Fold
The Dodgers continue to be busy on the free agent front,
signing four more players to Minor League contracts with invites to Major
League Spring Training.
Scott Dohmann (right-handed reliever)
Nick Green (infielder)
Argenis Reyes (infielder)
Jay Gibbons (outfielder)
Dohmann started last season with the Hiroshima Carp in the
Japanese League before being released and joining Reno in the Diamondbacks
organization. He’s logged 164 Major
League games between three clubs (Colorado, Kansas City, Tampa Bay), with most
of his action coming in a Rockies uniform (2004-06). His last stint in the Big Leagues came in
2008 with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Green spent last year with the Red Sox, batting .236 with six
homers and 35 RBI in 103 games before his season was shortened with a back disk
injury which necessitated surgery. The
infielder is expected to compete this spring for the back-up shortstop job
handled ably by former Duke (and briefly Isotope) Juan Castro last year.
Fellow middle infielder Argenis Reyes spent most of last
season with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons in the Mets organization, getting a
nine-game taste of New York in late June.
The switch-hitter made his Major League debut with the Mets in 2008,
batting .218 in 49 games.
Major League veteran Gibbons started last spring in Florida
Marlins camp but was released before the season started, later catching on with
the Newark Bears in the Independent Atlantic League. From 2001-07, Gibbons was a mainstay in the
Baltimore Orioles organization and enjoyed a career year in 2003 when he was
named Most Valuable Oriole after leading the team in runs (80), RBI (100), hits
(173), and doubles (39).
