The Los Angeles Dodgers started the process of restocking their bullpen by signing right-hander Tom Koehler to a one-year contract on Wednesday.

Koehler, 31, who was non-tendered by Toronto, is 36-55 with a 4.39 ERA in 161 major league games with Miami (2012-17) and the Blue Jays (2017).

Koehler began the 2017 season with the Marlins and went 1-5 in 12 starts before being dealt to the Toronto on Aug. 19. He then made all but one of his 15 appearances in the bullpen, compiling an 0-2 record and 2.65 ERA. Koehler held batters to a .242 average and struck out 18 in 17.0 innings.

The Dodgers are looking to replenish their bullpen after losing set-up man Brandon Morrow to the Chicago Cubs in free agency. Lefty Tony Watson is also a free agent.
