Dodgers Sign Tommy Kahnle

The Los Angeles Dodgers are at it again, signing another hard throwing right handed reliever, this time in the form of a two year 5.25 million dollar deal for Tommy Kahnle. Already the Dodgers have picked up Corey Knebel, and picking up Brudsar Graterol, and Blake Treinen last season, it appears that the Dodgers are stacking up on this build of reliever. Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery last August, so it is likely that he will not be ready until at least after the all start break of the 2020-2021 season. When Kahnle has been healthy, he has been an above average reliever in the big leagues, totaling a career ERA of 3.82 with a 3.47 FIP and 1.29 WHIP between time with the Rockies, White Sox and Yankees. Kahnle will be a good addition to a Dodgers bullpen that really does not need much more help moving forward going into 2021.
