Los Angeles Dodgers Sign Shortstop

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed infielder Bryson Brigman to a minor league contract, according to reports by Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

The move comes as the Dodgers are already facing multiple injuries at the shortstop position, including a recent knee injury suffered by Gavin Lux during a spring training game.

Brigman, who spent the 2022 season in the Miami Marlins organization, is expected to start the 2023 season with Triple-A Oklahoma City and provide depth at shortstop.

Last season, he batted .251/.299/.369 with eight home runs, 38 RBI, and nine stolen bases over 105 games at Triple-A Jacksonville. 

It is unclear whether the Dodgers had already planned to sign Brigman prior to Lux's injury, but the move will undoubtedly provide additional security at the position as the team prepares for the upcoming season.

For his minor-league career, the twenty-seven-year-old holds a .267/.340/.349 triple-slash line, with 20 home runs, 203 RBIs, 77 stolen bases and 307 runs scored over 642 games played.
