Dodgers Sign Gabe Kapler

The Dodgers have officially signed Gabe Kapler to a minor league deal, according to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times (on Twitter). The deal includes an invitation to big league Spring Training. The Dodgers were reportedly close to a deal with the TWC Sports client yesterday.

Kapler hit .210/.288/.290 in 140 plate appearances for the Rays last year. The 35-year-old has a .284/.343/.475 line against left-handers in his career, so he has a history of success against southpaws.

God bless Gabe, but why is he still trying to play? There is a reason he was coaching a couple of years ago…

My god Gabe, just stop it. It’s time to hang it up and go back to coaching.

while I tend to agree with you that people complain way too much about cheap minor league deals, sadly Gabe Kapler has a legit shot at playing LF at some point, considering his competition. So far, he’s up against Tony Gwynn Jr, Jay Gibbons, and Xavier Paul.
