Dodgers News: Reliever Pedro Baez Re-Signs with Los Angeles



Guess who’s back! After a season and a half hiatus, long-time former Dodger reliever Pedro Baez has returned to the organization according to the team’s transactions page and confirmed by multiple sources. The deal is of the minor league variety.

Baez left the Dodgers a champion after playing a key role in LA’s 2020 World Series title. The then 32-year-old inked a two-year deal with the Houston Astros worth $12.5 million. However, the move proved to be a bust for ‘Stros with Baez making only 7 appearances and allowing 3 earned runs over 2.1 innings (5.40 ERA) while he dealt with covid and shoulder issues.

He was released late in April.

The now 34-year-old right-hander returns to the organization that signed him out of the Dominican Republic as a third base prospect way back in 2007. He made the transition to the mound during the 2013 season and made his big league debut with the Dodgers in 2014.

In 7 seasons with LA, Baez appeared in 355 games (all in relief), posting a 3.03 ERA with 369 strikeouts against 120 walks over 356 innings pitched.

Baez will head to the Dodgers’ spring training complex as he works his way back to the big leagues.
