Dodgers Sign Two Pitchers To Minor League Deals

Diamond Leung reports that the Dodgers have signed 31-year-old career minor-leaguer LHP Brian Mazone, with an invitation to spring training. The Dodgers also re-signed Mario Alvarez, who had been earlier non-tendered to make room on the 40-man roster. Unlike Mazone, the right-handed Alvarez was not extended an invitation to spring training.

Those with long memories may recall that Alvarez was protected on the 40-man roster over Wesley Wright; Wright was later taken in the Rule 5 draft. Wright posted a 5.01 ERA with the Astros, good for an 85 ERA+. At 23, he's got a reasonable chance of becoming something, still, and represents, at least, a significant puzzle for those trying to decode what Logan White could possibly be thinking.
