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.

        You do know it’s just Reed Johnson’s twin brother right?

  3. 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.

    Well, thank you Fox. Without the loan, Frank wouldn’t been able to buy more time. Or anything else for that matter. What a mess…

    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.
