Dodgers expected to sign Jonathan Sanchez

Pedro Gomez of ESPN.com reports that Jonathan Sanchez has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers after being released by the Pirates last week.

Sanchez is 1-12 with an 8.73 ERA, .330 opponents’ batting average, and more walks (61) than strikeouts (60) in 78 innings since the beginning of last season, so presumably it would take a pretty impressive stretch at Triple-A for the Dodgers to consider calling him up.

That terrible pitching included allowing 18 runs in 13.2 innings for the Pirates and last season he wasn’t even much good in the minors.
