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.
