Dodgers News: LA Adds Outfielder Jason Martin on Minor League Deal

The wheeling and dealing continued for the Los Angeles on Tuesday with the signing of outfielder Jason Martin to a minor league. Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reported the move.

Martin is a left-hand swing, right-hand throw outfielder and a local product out of Corona, Calif. He has 85 of big experience, seeing time with the Pirates (2019-2020) and Rangers (2021) in his brief career. Over those 85 games, the 26-year-old has posted a .206/.248/.354 triple slash line with 6 home runs and 19 runs batted in.

One of those homers came against the last June against journeyman infielder Andy Burns, who was his pitching debut as a professional.

Across 720 minor spanning 8 seasons, Martin has a solid-but-not-outstanding .267/.341/.444 slash line with 81 home runs and 370 RBI. Defensively, he’s seen time at all three outfield spots over his career.

Martin will likely be a non-roster invite with the at spring training and fight for some early playing time in the Cactus season, but his role is more likely to be organizational depth. Particularly after LA just sent a pair of outfielders to Texas in a trade on Monday.

He’s no Corey or Seiya Suzuki, but it’s a very Andrew Friedman move indeed.
