Despite having two of the four highest-paid pitchers in all of baseball, including top earner Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers still aren't quite comfortable with their depth.
Los Angeles made a move on Friday, reportedly acquiring left-hander Eric Surkamp from the Chicago White Sox, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Surkamp, 27, was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the sixth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft out of North Carolina State University.
He went 2-2 with the Giants in 2011, in what was his first stint in the majors. Surkamp finished with a 5.74 ERA over 26.2 innings pitched. Both of his wins came against the San Diego Padres.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound pitcher was on the Giants roster in 2013, starting one game. Surkamp went 0-1.
Surkamp was claimed off waivers by the White Sox in 2013.
He went 2-0 with them in 2014, finishing with a 4.81 ERA over 24.1 innings pitched.
Surkamp is 4-3 all-time with a 6.20 career ERA.
