The Dodgers have agreed to a deal with veteran right-hander Nick Tropeano according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. Tropeano, a client of the Bledsoe Agency, rejected an outright assignment from the Mets to go to free agency earlier in the week. It’s a minor league deal between the two parties.
Tropeano, 30, will likely be giving the Dodgers some depth both in the rotation and the bullpen. The right-hander is no stranger to Southern California, having spent parts of five seasons in the Angels organization earlier in his career.
Tropeano had 195 2/3 frames for the Angels from 2015-19, missing a season-plus in the middle due to Tommy John surgery but generally faring well when healthy (4.51 ERA, 4.48 SIERA, 21.5 strikeout percentage, 9.3 percent walk rate).
