MLB: Dodgers sign outfielder and pitcher to Minor Leagues

The Los Angeles Dodgers reached agreements with the gardener Jason Martin and right-handed pitcher Beau Burrows, who announced his own deal with LA on Twitter this Tuesday night. Presumably both contracts are minor league deals that contain invitations to spring training.

Martin has appeared in the majors in each of the last three seasons. As part of the four-player return to the Astros Pirates in the 2018 Gerrit Cole trade, he only scored 51 trips to the plate at Pittsburgh in his first two seasons:

Martin’s longest time in the majors came last season when he recorded 154 plate appearances for the Texas Rangers. However, the 26-year-old hit just .208 / .248 / .354 with six home runs in that time, and Texas pulled him off the 40-man roster at the end of the season.

In parts of three Triple-A campaigns, the Southern California native owns a .243 / .315 / .412 slash line. Martin has spent most of his time in the minor leagues in center field, but the Rangers deployed him primarily in left field at the GL level. Martin, a left-handed hitter, will likely try to compete for fourth or fifth on the field next spring.

Burrows is a former first-round pick for the Tigers. He made his major league debut with Detroit last year and split the 2021 campaign between the division rivals the Tigers and Twins. Burrows’ experience in the majors consists of just 17 2/3 innings with a 10.70 ERA and he has allowed eight HRs with eleven strikeouts and 11 walks.

The 25-year-old hasn’t done very well at Triple-A either, but he’s not far from being one of the most respected arms of the Tigers organization. He pitched reasonably well as a starter to Double-A and could be seen as rotation or bullpen depth for Los Angeles.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
