Dodgers sign Chad Gaudin

6 Comments

Veteran right-hander Chad Gaudin, who missed all of last season with a neck injury, has signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers.

Gaudin signed with the Phillies last spring, but then failed his physical exam and was released. He last pitched for the Giants in 2013, throwing 97 innings with a 3.06 ERA, but he’s 32 years old and did not post an ERA under 4.40 in any season from 2007-2012.

Los Angeles is stockpiling pitching depth and Gaudin could help as a fifth starter or middle reliever at some point.
