Dodgers Sign Pitcher Brandon Beachy


January 7, 2016

The Dodgers have signed free-agent right-handed pitcher Brandon Beachy to a one-year contract.

Beachy, 29, has gone 14-12 with a 3.36 ERA in 48 Major League starts in five seasons with Atlanta (2010-13) and Los Angeles (2015), missing significant action due to Tommy John surgeries on June 21, 2012 and March 21, 2014. In 275.2 innings in the big leagues, Beachy has limited opposing hitters to a .223 batting average with a 1.16 WHIP and posted a 3.04 strikeout-to-walk ratio, striking out 280 and walking only 92.

Beachy spent the 2015 season in the Los Angeles organization and made two starts with the Dodgers (0-1, 7.88 ERA) after being reinstated from the 60-day disabled list on July 11 (recovery from Tommy John surgery). He finished the season in the minors, where, including his rehab assignment, he compiled a 1-1 record with a 3.51 ERA and limited opponents to a .229 batting average in 11 games (10 starts) with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City,

Beachy was originally signed by the Braves as a non-drafted free agent on July 22, 2008 out of Indiana Wesleyan University.

To create room on the 40-man roster the Dodgers designated left-handed pitcher Tyler Olson for assignment.
