While the Los Angeles Dodgers have multiple prospects in their farm system that fans are clamoring to see at the big league level, the organization continued to fill out the overall depth one day after signing infielder Alex Liddi to a Minor-League deal.
According to J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles News Group, the Dodgers signed Josh Bennett to a Minor-League contract and the pitcher will join their Triple-A affiliate:

Bennett began his career with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2004 and his last season in the majors was 2009, when he pitched for the Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays. With the Braves in 2008, the reliever appeared in 72 games, finishing with a 3.70 ERA in 97.1 innings of work. While primarily serving as a reliever in his four-year career, Bennett has six starts to his name with a 2-4 record.
The 33-year-old last started a game for the Braves in 2008. After falling out of MLB, Bennett continued his career in the Minor League ranks, with his latest work coming as a starter for the Broncos de Reynosa in the Mexican League.
