Dodgers Sign Longtime NL West Infielder to MiLB Deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers have singed infielder Alan Trejo to a minor league deal, per the team’s transaction log.

Trejo, 28, has spent the last four seasons in the National League West with the Colorado Rockies.

Trejo, a 16th-round pick by the Rockies in 2017, debuted in 2021, and has appeared in 173 games at the MLB level. He’s slashing .228/.276/.334 with nine home runs, 47 RBIs, and an OPS of .610 in his career.

This year, Trejo has endured his worst year as a pro, slashing .143/.182/.143 with an OPS of .325 and an OPS+ of negative-10. He was designated for assignment by the Rockies, cleared waivers, and elected free agency.

Fortunately for Trejo, he was signed by the Dodgers, and is already with Triple-A Oklahoma City where he’ll make his debut on Tuesday night.

Trejo has played second base, shortstop, and third base at the MLB level, and provides infield depth at Triple-A. He’ll now work with the team’s hitting coaches, where they’ll hope to unlock something that helps resurrect his career.

Trejo’s best season came in 2022, when he slashed .271/.312/.424 with four home runs, 17 RBIs, and an OPS of .736 in 35 games. The Dodgers will try to bring back that version of Trejo, and see if they can find another hidden gem on the free agent market.

    1. File this one under the heading “Moves That Make You Scratch Your Head.” Seems like a move with almost zero upside, given that he’s never gained any traction in his career. Unless his glove is beyond amazing?

    2. This kid played with my son in high school. I’ve been following his career. He is a great defensive utility guy. We know what Dodger coaches have done with players in the past. Give him a chance. Last night’s defensive woes suggest it can’t hurt.

  1. Moves like this will a be dime a dozen for Los Doyers while they load up the Brinks truck for delivery to Shohei in the years to come.

    1. Dodger’s origination just fn LOVES these ” versatile” below.200 hitters. We could field an entire team with these guys right now 1-9 ! Lol

      Joking aside; This organization knows what it’s doing I assume, and this is just a systematical – ” let’s get .0027% better “. I think it’s just a redundancy plan, like in a passenger airplane there’s 10 back ups for every vital part. Maybe Biggio’s hurt and they’re waiting a couple more games to see what happens or something? Or maybe Treyo can hit lefties really well,.or he can hit a knuckleball really well – in case SD makes playoffs? It’s something like that they signed him .. I for one would like to know. Lol

  2. Every piece of garbage that comes through MLB, Dodger’s have to pick up. It’s automatic at this point! Lol. Can’t wait for Gallo to get DFA’d.

  3. I don’t understand what every body is yammering about. They signed Trejo to a minor league contract. That seems very low risk with a potential upside. Maybe the Dodgers coaches can get him back on track or maybe not. The minor leagues are the place to find that out. I’m all for giving him a chance.
