Last season, Greene appeared in nine games for the Dodgers and put up a 4.05 ERA in 6.2 IP. He was released on September 26th. The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya reports that Greene is a non-roster invitee (NRI) to Dodgers spring training.

The former Detroit Tigers closer and 2019 AL All-Star is only 33-year-old so a return to prominence is not completely out of the question.
He joins relievers Yency Almonte, Daniel Zamora, and a slew of other arms as pitchers who have signed minor league deals with the Dodgers this offseason.
The Dodgers should have more than a few options for short-term, plug-in relievers throughout the season.
