The Los Angeles Dodgers announced today that they have signed catchers Miguel Olivo and Griff Erickson to minor league deals, each of which includes an invite to Spring Training with the big league club.
Olivo, 35, is likely nothing more than potential organizational depth at the catching position for the Dodgers, with A.J. Ellis and Tim Federowicz all but firmly entrenched at the Major League level. Olivo was the subject of an interesting situation with the Miami Marlins last year, as he walked out on the team after they refused his release. In 2013 with Miami, he put up a brutal slash line of .203/.250/.392, far below his career numbers of .241/.275/.417.
Erickson, 25, returns to the Dodgers as a free agent. He has not spent much time above Double-A , putting up a .199/.324/.414 slash line in 2013.
