Dodgers reportedly sign Alex Liddi to minor league contract

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers appear to have added to their razor-thin organizational depth at third base, close to a deal with Alex Liddi on a minor league deal, per multiple reports. Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reported the Dodgers signed Liddi, while the Italian Baseball and Softball Federation reported Liddi was taking his physical Thursday and would first start in extended spring training at Camelback Ranch in Arizona before reporting to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Liddi, 25, was released by the White Sox on Tuesday after hitting .171/.203/.303 (13-for-76) in 22 games with Triple-A Charlotte.

The right-handed Liddi has hit .208/.266/.370 in 61 games in parts of three major league seasons with the Mariners from 2011-2013. He played for Team Italy in the 2013 World Baseball Classic along with former Dodgers infielder Nick Punto and current Dodgers catcher/reliever Drew Butera.

Liddi hit 30 home runs in Triple-A Tacoma at age 22 in 2011, hitting .259/.332/.488 in 138 games, but has hit just .247/.300/.423 with 29 home runs in 206 Triple-A games since.

Most of his defensive work - 734 of 910 minor league games - has come at third base, with some time also mixed in at first base, shortstop and left field.

Jamie Romak has seen the most time at third base for the Isotopes this season, with 22 games at the hot corner. Miguel Rojas has played 10 of his 33 games at third for Albuquerque.
