Good morning baseball fans!
The Dodgers signed Joe Thatcher to a minor-league deal:
Over 22.3 innings last season, Thatcher pitched to a 3.18 ERA. He is not a lefty specialist, though, since lefties batted .245 against Thatcher last season.
Thatcher could be a candidate to join the Dodgers' bullpen since he has a notable amount of experience. Over nine seasons, he has pitched to a 3.38 ERA
Miami adds some bullpen help:

Los Angeles could be without a top starter for a bit longer:
#Dodgers Dave Roberts said Hyun Jin Ryu is dealing with "a little groin strain" and has had to back off his throwing program. Again.— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) April 16, 2016
Is Fredi Gonzalez on the hot seat? It is probably safe to assume yes.
Charlie Blackmon is headed to the 15-day DL with a foot injury.
