Tis the season for odds and ends Dodgers signings apparently. Just a few days after the team announced they had signed several arms to minor league deals, it looks like we’re getting another one coming.
Tim Federowicz took to his Twitter account this morning to announce that he was returning to the Dodgers after a 6-year stint away from the team. Los Angeles has yet to confirm the signing, but it’s safe to assume that Federowicz(or FedEx) is being brought in on a minor league deal as well.
I’m back in Dodger blue! So excited to be back with the team that first gave me chance to reach my dream of playing in the MLB. Year 14 and counting.

Federowicz was originally traded to the Dodgers by the Red Sox back in 2011 during a three-team deal. FedEx was called up later that year to make his major league debut with Los Angeles but spent most of the season with their Triple-A Albuquerque affiliate.
Since he was traded away from the Dodgers in the Matt Kemp deal that sent them to the Padres in 2014, Federowicz has bounced around the big leagues. He signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs in 2016, followed by a minor-league deal that offseason with the Giants. Since then, he’s been part of the Astros, Reds, Indians, and Rangers.
Federowicz provides a little bit of veteran depth for the Dodgers, but the timing is interesting. His signing comes on the same day that it was revealed the team pulled Keibert Ruiz from his Winter League stint down in Venezuela. While there are no active rumors, could a trade be on the horizon?
