Please add the following names to your program for today’s game against the Chicago White Sox:
If the Dodgers end up extending a spring training invitation to another left-handed pitcher from their minor-league ranks (now that Robert Carson‘s invitation has been withdrawn), here’s a name to pay attention to: Jeremy Horst.
The Dodgers signed Horst, 29, to a minor-league contract. Currently he does not have an invitation to the major-league camp. The Wyoming native has appeared in 72 major-league games over parts of three seasons with the Reds and Phillies from 2011-13.
In 2014, Horst appeared in 45 games (three starts) for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate, and posted a 4-2 record and a 3.98 earned-run average. When the Phillies outrighted Horst for the second time, he elected free agency.
