The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-signed left-handed pitcher Matt Gage to a minor league contract. This move comes after Gage was designated for assignment and subsequently released by the Dodgers earlier in the week.

The decision to bring back Gage is driven by the team’s need for additional bullpen depth at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 31-year-old southpaw previously posted a 4.48 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP over 37.1 innings with the Houston Astros’ Triple-A affiliate last season.

Despite his recent minor league performance, Gage has yet to make an appearance in the major leagues in 2024. In his previous stint with the Houston Astros in the majors last season, Gage showcased promising statistics, recording a 2.70 ERA, eight strikeouts, and allowing only two earned runs over 6.2 innings across five games.

Throughout his career, Gage has maintained a solid track record, boasting a career 1.83 ERA, 20 strikeouts, and a 1.07 WHIP in 19.2 innings of major league action.
