JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — RF Gabe Kapler has signed a minor-league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, reports.

Kapler, a 35-year-old free agent, hit .210 last year with the Tampa Bay Rays, with 2 HRs, 4 doubles and 14 RBIs in 124 at-bats.

His contract includes an invitation to the Dodgers’ spring training camp, and thus an opportunity, however slim, to make the club’s major-league roster.

The deal represents a coming home of sorts for Kapler, who starred at William Howard Taft High School in Woodland Hills, a half-hour drive from Dodger Stadium.

Thanks to Jewish Baseball News reader Michael Lebowitz for the tip.
