Dodgers sign Aaron Laffey

Ronald Martinez

The Dodgers have signed Aaron Laffey to a minor-league deal.

The Dodgers signed left-handed pitcher Aaron Laffey to a minor-league contract, reports Chris Cotillo of CLNS Radio.

The Dodgers had been sorely-lacking in the pitching department, so adding Laffey to their Triple-A rotation has to be a relief for them. They have suffered heavy losses in their starting rotation.

After being hesitant to trade their pitching depth before the season, the team traded Aaron Harang away and then promptly lost many of their key starters to injury.

Stephen Fife, one of the replacements, also sustained an injury and will miss time.

Perhaps the most notorious injury that the team has suffered in their pitching rotation was the one to Zack Greinke, which was sustained when he was involved in a benches-clearing brawl with Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Laffey pitched for the Mets earlier this year, but was largely ineffective and the team let him go.
