LOS ANGELES — Less than a month after being drafted, former Texas Tech pitcher Clayton Beeter will join the Los Angeles Dodgers in California. The Dodgers added Beeter to their 60-man player pool on Monday.
Los Angeles selected Beeter with the No. 66 pick of the 2020 MLB Draft on June 11. Twenty-five days later, he’ll be practicing with the big league club.
The Dodgers officially signed Beeter Sunday night.
Beeter will join a fellow former Red Raider in Hollywood, as the Dodgers added Lubbock native AJ Ramos to their squad on July 2.
