Dodgers Have Agreed To A Deal With Veteran OF Kevin Pillar

The Dodgers have signed veteran outfielder Kevin Pillar to a minor league contract, according to the Dodgers.

The 33-year-old hit 15 home runs and a 90 wRC+ in 124 games last season for the Mets and has made stops with the Blue Jays, Giants, Red Sox, Rockies, and Mets. Pillar played his high school baseball at Chaminade Prep in West Hills, and went to college at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

Pillar has since spent time in San Francisco, Colorado, Boston and Queens. Over the past three seasons, he’s batted .256/.293/.433 with 42 home runs and 23 steals. He’s been better against left-handed pitching in that time, as one would expect for a right-handed hitter, posting a .279/307/.499 batting line. Pillar’s average sprint speed has dipped a bit in recent years, though, and Statcast suggests that his initial jump on fly-balls has also slowed as he’s progressed into his 30s.
