Los Angeles Dodgers Re-Sign Veteran Left-Handed Pitcher

Bringing him back.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-signed veteran pitcher Robbie Erlin to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Erlin elected to explore the free agent market this winter, but after being unable to find a contract he ultimately decided a return to the Dodgers was his best bet.

Erlin spent the majority of the 2022 season with Triple-A Oklahoma, recording an ugly 7.01 ERA, 1.69 WHIP, and 69 strikeouts over 77 innings of work. He made 14 starts, seven relief appearances and held a 5-4 record.

The thirty-two-year-old is a veteran of 341.2 innings at the major-league level where he holds a 4.87 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 275 strikeouts. He's spent six seasons with the San Diego Padres, one with the Pittsburgh Pirates and one with the Atlanta Braves.

Erlin is a former third-round pick by the Texas Rangers in the 2009 MLB Draft.
