While the Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t been active signing major league players, they’ve collected several minor leaguers to add to their minor league system.
The Dodgers signed four minor leaguers last week with just two of the four receiving Spring Training invites. Yesterday, they officially announced they signed two more minor leaguers via Bill Shaikin of the LA Times:
#Dodgers announce signings of LHP Daniel Moskos, C J.C. Boscan, IF Brendan Harris & Clint Robinson to minor league contracts w/camp invites.

Boscan was one of the four that signed last week while Harris was signed to a minor league deal the same afternoon the Dodgers lost Skip Schumaker to the Cincinnati Reds. With Schumaker and Nick Punto gone, Harris has a chance to be the utility infielder as he played all four infield positions and the outfield for the Angels last season.
Meanwhile, Robinson is a 28-year-old first baseman/outfielder who spent time between Double A and Triple A last season in the Toronto Blue Jays organization. Between the two stops, Robinson hit .254 with 13 home runs and 55 RBI after he was claimed off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates in Spring Training last season.
Moskos is a former number four overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Pirates and found himself in the Chicago White Sox organization for the past two seasons. Spending time at Triple A both years, Moskos pitched is a career 26-28 with a 4.43 ERA in the minor leagues as a 1.68 K/BB ratio isn’t ideal for his success.
Besides Harris, Moskos and Robinson are likely Triple A bound as the Dodgers continue to add organizational depth this winter.
