Here is some Dodgers news that you may have already heard about during a super slow time right now. Right handed reliever Yimi Garcia missed the entire 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery but the Dodgers still tendered him a contract anyways according to J.P. Hoornstra as the two sides avoided salary arbitration.
The Dodgers signed Yimi Garcia to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.

Garcia was a primary cog in the Dodgers bullpen back in 2015 as he posted a 3.34 era in over 50 frames logged. However injuries severely limited his playing time over the next season which ultimately led to his ucl replacement.
It remains to be seen as to when Garcia will make a return to the mound, but if and when he does he could find a spot in the Dodger’s relief squad if he’s healthy.
