The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed right-handed relief pitcher Peter Moylan to a minor league contract. Moylan leaves the Atlanta Braves organization after seven years. He was originally a part of the Twins organization, and was out of American baseball for almost a decade. The Braves signed him after seeing his performance in the World Baseball Classic in 2006.
As one of the longest tenured members of the Braves bullpen, Moylan compiled a 2.59 ERA and a 1.285 WHIP during his seven seasons in a Braves uniform. He was never much of a strikeout pitcher, he was instead usually referred to as the Braves ground ball specialist, because of his ability to induce ground balls.
