Dodgers News: Infielder Elliot Soto Signs Minor League Deal with LA



The Dodgers made another depth move ahead of the 2021 season. According to J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group, infielder Elliot Soto signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers and received an invite to spring training.

The 31-year-old Soto made his MLB debut with the Anaheim Angels last year, going 2-6 in 3 games. Originally drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2010, last season marked his 11th campaign in professional baseball. In 901 games, the right-handed batter has slashed .256/.334/.332 with 17 home runs in nearly 3000 at-bats across various minor league stops.

While shortstop has been his primary position, Soto has spent time at second and third base, adding versatility to a team that has a keen focus on that kind of thing. He’ll be brought into camp with an outside shot at an opening day role.
