Dodgers News: RHP Kevin Gowdy Signs Minor League Contract with LA
The Los Angeles Dodgers are making moves! They already made a few minor league signings this week, adding Hamlet Marte, Jordan Yamamoto and Wander Suero. And good news, Dodger fans. I got another one for you.
The Dodgers also added RHP Kevin Gowdy on a minor league deal, per the team’s MiLB transaction log. They assigned him to Double-A Tulsa, where he’ll start the season with the Drillers.
Unless you’re an avid followers of minor league baseball, or a member of Gowdy’s extended family, you’re probably wondering who he is. Well, let me enlighten you.
Kevin Gowdy was drafted in the second round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the Philadelphia Phillies. The Santa Barbara, CA native is a 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher, who has experience as both a starter and reliever.
In his MiLB career, Gowdy is 8-16 with a 5.42 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP in 80 games (39 starts). He’s struck out 184 and walked 109 in 216 innings.
His less-than promising numbers are the reason the Dodgers signed him to be in Double-A. They see something they think they can work with, and will see if they can get him to play at a higher level. And if not, he’ll add some depth in the minor leagues.
