The Dodgers on Wednesday added to their backup catcher competition mix with the signing of Jesus Flores to a minor league contract, per Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Flores will receive an invitation to big league camp in spring training.
Flores, 28, joins Eliezer Alfonzo, Wilkin Castillo, and Ramon Castro as non-roster invitees to Camelback Ranch, who will compete with Tim Federowicz for the backup catcher spot, with Triple-A Albuquerque the likely fall back for one if not two of the competitors. Federowicz and A.J. Ellis are the only two catchers currently on the Dodgers' 40-man roster.
