Orioles signed LHP Zack Dodson to a minor league contract.

The 25-year-old southpaw was a fourth-round selection of the Pirates in the 2009 draft and has spent the past seven seasons in the Pittsburgh organization. He's fresh off a season where he posted a 3.67 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 89/36 K/BB ratio over 162 innings at Double-A Altoona.

Fastball: When Dodson started his professional career he was throwing the 4-seamed fastball, as he has worked his way through the Pirates organization he now throws the 2-seamed fastball. Over the course of Dodson’s 6 innings of work his fastball sat between 89-92 MPH and did not lose velocity as his pitch count increased. In his final inning of work Dodson hit 92 MPH three times. Dodson was able to locate the fastball and worked inside often against the opposition even hitting Ollie Linton in the first inning.

Change-Up: Dodson mixed in his Change-Up and used the offering to keep the opposition off-balance throughout the game. This pitch was consistent and sat at 84-85 MPH throughout the game.

Slider: Dodson used the slider to try to get some chases out of the zone with two strikes. The Akron hitters did not bite as Dodson did not record a strikeout during his six innings of work. The slider came in at 78-80 MPH mostly

Overall: Dodson threw total of 85 pitches with 58 being called a strike over the course of 6 innings. Over the course of his six frames, Dodson worked fast and located all his pitches well causing the Rubberduck batters to get mostly weak contact against him.

I do not know how testing, and how long before the result announcements are handled by MLB or MiLB, so it begs the question: when the O's signed him, were they already aware of this?

If not, then I'd say this young man needs to figure out what's important in his life real quick. To keep him may enable him, and send the wrong message to the minor league players that it's okay.. and it's not.
