Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Edlefsen and Danny Keller will report to minor league camp.

GLENDALE -- The Dodgers signed a pair of right-handed pitchers from their annual open tryout camp held on the minor league fields on Thursday at Camelback Ranch. Steve Edlefsen and Danny Keller were each inked to minor league deals and will report to minor league camp over the weekend.

Several minor league players have been in camp for weeks, but the first official workout for minor league pitchers and catchers is on Monday.

Edlefsen, 28, pitched the last seven years in the Giants system. He was 2-2 with a 6.28 ERA in 47 games with Triple-A Fresno in 2013, with 45 walks and 42 strikeouts in 53 innings. He was drafted by the Giants in the 16th round in 2007 out of the University of Nebraska. Edlefsen pitched in the majors with the Giants for parts of two seasons, putting up a 6.75 ERA in 27 games with 16 walks and 15 strikeouts in 26⅔ innings in 2011-2012.

Keller, who turns 22 in June, was drafted by the Brewers in the sixth round in 2011 out of Newbury Park High School in Thousand Oaks. He hasn't advanced past rookie level and has an 8.03 ERA in three seasons, with 69 strikeouts and 54 walks in 108⅔ innings. He was sidelined by a back injury in 2013. Keller was released by Milwaukee in October.

Here's an interview of Keller with Brewers Radio in August 2013.
