The Dodgers are always looking to add quality arms to their minor league system. Regardless of the depth they already have, Los Angeles will always want more guys out there. Especially after a year like 2021 that has seen so many arms go down with injuries in the first part of the season.
This week, the Dodgers signed RHP Bryan Brickhouse to a minor league deal. Brickhouse is about to turn 29-years-old and has some experience at the Triple-A level. He was originally a third-round draft pick by the Royals in 2011 right out of high school.
Brickhouse features a decent pitch mix that includes a fastball that sits in the mid-90s. He also has a recently added two-seamer that reportedly sits up near 96 mph. He hasn’t had much success as a pro, but an organization like the Dodgers could definitely help him figure things out.

The Dodgers are once again going with a bullpen game tonight in Los Angeles. Facing off against the Giants for a 4-game series this weekend, LA will look to stick with the 4-man rotation that has carried them over the last few weeks. David Price is a prime candidate to open the game Thursday night.
Clayton Kershaw sounds like he is just as tired as every other Dodgers fan when asked if the Padres are a rival. In an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, Kershaw gave one of the more sarcastic answers that we have ever heard.
