Yesterday, the Los Angeles Dodgers organization held an open tryout at Camelback Ranch. During these tryouts, the Dodgers were hoping to make some additions to their farm system and they succeeded. Today, the Dodgers signed two right handed pitchers by the names of Steve Edlefsen and Dan Keller.

Edlefsen spent the all of two seasons in the major leagues with the San Francisco Giants. The 28-year-old was drafted by the Giants in 2007 in the 16th round. By 2011, he finally made his debut in the majors. In the two years to follow, he had a career 6.75 ERA in 27 games total and was sent back to Triple A last season.

Keller is a little younger than Edlefsen and the 21-year-old has spent the last three seasons in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system. The Brewers drafted him right out of high school in 2011 during the sixth round. In 15 starts and 38 games, the right hander had an 8.03 ERA and hasn’t appeared in a single game in the majors.

This isn’t the first time the Dodgers have added players during their open tryouts in the spring. Last year they added outfielder Robbie Garvey to their farm system. He signed a minor-league deal and played for the Great Lakes Loons as well as the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
