The Dodgers have added another veteran arm to their roster. Jair Jurrjens has signed a minor-league deal with Los Angeles, back in the United States after spending the 2016 season playing in Taiwan, a republic of China. The 31-year old pitched for the Rockies back in 2014 and, more recently, for the Netherlands in this past World Baseball Classic.
