The Los Angeles Dodgers added RHP Brandon Morrow on a minor league deal just a few moments ago, and just continue to stockpile hard throwing RHP with injury histories to their team, after picking up Blake Treinen last offseason, and Corey Knebel and now Morrow this offseason. The often injured Morrow, has been a stellar relief pitcher when he stays on the field, posting a 1.98 ERA between 2015-2018 with the San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs.

Moving forward for Morrow and the Dodgers, it is hard to predict any form of statistics going into 2021, and whether or not he will even make the team out of camp, with the depth the Dodgers have on the pitching side of things. The fact he also hasn’t thrown a pitch since 2018, is a bit of a worry, but on a minor league deal like this, the Dodgers are risking practically nothing, to bring in a pitcher who has had some outstanding seasons, and entering age 35, might still have something left in the tank.
