According to multiple reports, the Dodgers have signed pitcher Adam Kolarek to a minor league contract, the team confirmed, bringing back the left-hander who pitched for Los Angeles in 2019-20.
Kolarek, who turns 34 in January, spent most of 2021 and 2022 in the minors leagues, struggling in Triple-A for the A's in both years. Since it's a minor-league contract, Kolarek doesn't need a spot on the 40-man roster unless and until he makes the big-league team. L.A.'s 40-man roster currently sits at 39 players.
Kolarek was a key member of the Dodgers' 2020 World Series championship team, posting a 0.95 ERA in the regular season.
