Dodgers News: LA Adds Shortstop Bryson Brigman on Minor League Deal

The Dodgers wasted no time adding some reassurance in the infield. According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, the Boys in Blue have signed shortstop Bryson Brigman to a minor league deal.

This signing comes in the wake of Gavin Lux‘s injury that he suffered earlier today in their spring training matchup against division rival San Diego Padres.

Brigman is a 27-year-old shortstop from northern California and was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2014 MLB draft.

Bryson has never received a shot at the big leagues and has spent all of his time in the minors. In the minors, he is a .267 batter collecting 20 home runs, 203 RBIs, 77 stolen bases and a .689 OPS in 2367 ABs.

The infielder bats right, and throws right and will get the chance to showcase what he can bring to the Dodgers.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Lux underwent an MRI on Monday, but the team did not provide any additional information.

The kid from Wisconsin suffered his leg injury when he was making his way to third base where in the bottom of the sixth inning. He appeared to buckle his knee and fell awkwardly, barley making it to third and then being carted off by the medical staff.

Spring training is not off to a good start, but we hope it isn’t anything too serious for Gavin.
