Mandatory Credit: Brad Mills-USA TODAY SportsThe Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly signed right-handed relief pitcher Kevin Gregg, though the details of the contract aren't known. What is clear is that he'll be on their minor league team.

This is a particularly interesting signing because Gregg is clearly past his prime, with his best season coming in 2010, in which he saved 37 games for the Toronto Blue Jays.

The odd part isn't that they signed an aging RP to the minors, it's that they're still signing pitchers when their bullpen is already totally loaded up.

It may be yet another stamp of the new ownership group, that they really are looking to cultivate a good farm system, rather than just lucking out from it as the Dodgers have occasionally done in the recent past.

Last year, Gregg had a 4.95 ERA with a 3-2 record.
