The Dodgers continue to make minor moves this winter. One of the signings is Daniel Corcino, who has been in the Dodgers farm system for the past four seasons. The second move, which was announced late Wednesday night, is Markus Solbach. The born and raised German spent the 2018 season in the Australian Baseball League.

Daniel Corcino

There wasn’t too much buzz going on around twitter about the Corcino re-signing. It became official when the MLB Transactions page posted it on their site.

Daniel Corcino has spent parts of the last four seasons in the Dodgers organization, spending a minimal amount of time in Los Angeles with the Dodgers. The right-handed starter called both OKC and Tulsa home in the 2018 season. He also played appeared in two games for the Dodgers when the injury big hit the team.

The 2018 season was a strong one for the right-hander. He earned high praised from OKC Dodgers Broadcast/Communications Direction Alex Freedman. Corcino’s 103.1 innings of work included a total of 24 appearances and 19 starts on the mound. His 102 strikeouts were the second most on the team, behind Manny Banuelos’ 127.

Markus Solbach

Markus Solbach has called Australia home this winter. The Adelaide Bite is the team Solbach has been a part of this 2018 season. Late last night, the team announced that Solbach will make his return back to professional baseball in the USA. In 41.2 innings of work, Solbach allowed just two runs along with an outstanding 0.43 ERA. His 11.9 SO/9 is his career high at any level.

I’m really hoping that Solbach’s nickname comes along with him to the Dodgers. “The Big Germ” spent time in both the Twins and Diamondbacks minor league systems in his first six seasons. Solbach has never had anything better than an average season during his time as a professional.

“This is what I’ve been waiting for over the last two and a half years and I thank the Dodgers for giving me this opportunity and the Bite for letting me showcase myself in front of scouts in such a great team and league.”

Solbach was slated to start Wednesday night for the Bite in a first of three-game series against Geelong-Korea. His eight dominant innings led to a Bite win over Geelong-Korea. He allowed just four hits, one run, along with five strikeouts in the victory.

    • Every team in baseball does this. Similar stories about the Mets, Pirates and Reds moved at about the same time as this one. It is important to have complete minor league rosters when the season starts. This includes having non-prospects (the majority of minor leaguers) as well as prospects. If you have been following the game for a reasonable amount of time, you would know this.

      • Most here, including me know and understand the need for a strong farm system to begin the season with. But most here feel as I do it is time to be thinking about upgrading the MLB club, because that is the club that you will begin the season with. To put it simple, we want Dodgers to now concentrate on filling those talked about needs for the 2019 season now.

  1. These are a part of the plan.. Short term high impact players take more time than “close to the show” ones… Keeping the farm system loaded is every bit as important.
