The Dodgers have just over a week left until Opening Day. With so much movement around camp, they finally appear to be getting that roster closer to being set. There are still plenty of cuts to be made though, with over 40 guys still on the big league side of camp.
This week, the Dodgers made a few rounds of cuts. They added to that on Monday afternoon, sending Andre Jackson and Jason Martin to the minor league camp. They had to option Jackson since he is part of the current 40-man roster.
Jackson should be a guy that the Dodgers turn to at some point this season. He can be an arm to start games for them, but he can also come out of the bullpen with some overpowering stuff. He appeared in 3 games for Los Angeles last year and allowed 3 runs in 11.2 innings of work.
But Jackson did punch out 10 batters while working to get his walks under control. He could be a piece for them down the line, but the current plan is to get him some seasoning at the minor league level.
Martin signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers before the lockout. He hit two homeruns in Spring Training, but still batted .176 across 10 games. He previously spent parts of 3 different seasons playing at the big leagues over the last 3 years.
