Dodgers News: LA Signs Former Closer Hansel Robles
The Dodgers have proven time and time again that they won’t go out and buy a bullpen. With the uncertainty surrounding relievers, it just doesn’t make a lot of sense for them. Instead, they’ve invested their resources into analytics and unlocking the most they can from guys.
This week, the Dodgers went out and added another name into the bullpen mix. Southern California might remember when Hansel Robles was coming out of the Angels bullpen to lock down saves. He ended up saving 23 games for them during the 2019 season.
And now, he’s back with a Southern California team. The report coming out today is that Robles has signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers. He was just designated for assignment by the Red Sox this month.
Can confirm @mikedeportes' report that the #Dodgers have signed RHP Hansel Robles, who was DFA'd by the Red Sox.
It's a minor league deal for Robles, per source.

Robles has struggled since leaving Anaheim. He posted a 5.48 ERA coming out of Boston’s bullpen this season in 26 appearances. But his talk rate when way up again, something the Dodgers have proven that they can help guys work on. See Yency Almonte and Tony Gonsolin for 2 really good examples of that.
