Hey, Randy Keisler is back on the baseball scene. Kind of.
According to his representation’s official Twitter feed, the 35-year-old left-hander agreed to a minor league contract Thursday with the Dodgers.
Keisler hasn’t pitched in a major league game since back in 2007, when he registered a 5.19 ERA and allowed 21 hits over 17.1 innings in a short-lived stint with the Cardinals. He posted a 3.98 ERA in seven starts last year for Vaqueros Laguna of the Mexican League, but his control wasn’t great and he seems likely to spend all of 2011 in the Dodgers’ farm system.
We’ll call him camp depth. Or a cheesy screenplay in the making.
