Former Cincinnati Reds outfielder Tyler Holt, 27, on Tuesday has signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Holt is not expected to make the Los Angeles Dodgers roster when the 2017 Major League Baseball begins since he is likely to begin the regular season with the Oklahoma City Dodgers which is the AAA minor league branch of the National League West Division team. Holt has played in the Major League Baseball level with the Cleveland Indians (2014-2015) and the Cincinnati Reds (2015-2016). Holt was sent to the Louisville Bats which is the AAA minor league team of the Cincinnati Reds in October 2016 before Holt was released by the Bats at the end of the baseball season. Holt will basically be a utility outfielder for the Dodgers in 2017. At least he will have a chance to play for his third team in the Major Leagues next baseball season.

This is basically a roster depth signing.

It is true since Holt is not exactly a superstar outfielder.
