2012 MLB Free Agents: Shane Lindsay Signs Minor League Deal With Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly signed right-handed relief pitcher Shane Lindsay to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. The Australian-born pitcher, who turns 27 in January, saw six innings of action for the Chicago White Sox in September, his first taste of major league action.

"I am looking forward to getting back over there and hopefully getting back in the majors," Lindsay said, per the Australian Baseball League.

Lindsay has spent parts of seven seasons in the minor leagues with the White Sox and Colorado Rockies. The good news is that he has a career minor league strikeout rate of 12.2 per nine innings, but the bad news is that he has averaged 6.8 walks per nine innings as well.

Lindsay has 109 walks in 110 2/3 innings between Double A and Triple A combined in 2010 and 2011.
