Carrillo's contract was purchased by the Dodgers on Friday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. A 5-foot-10 righty, Carrillo lacks typical starter size, but he has a starter's pitch mix. He threw 86 innings at High-A in 2019 and spent this past summer at the alternate training site, likely setting up an assignment to Double-A or Triple-A in 2021.
Carrillo was named to the Dodgers' 60-man player pool Sunday. The 21-year-old right-hander made 23 appearances (21 as a starter) at High-A Rancho Cucamonga last season, accumulating a 5.44 ERA and 1.60 WHIP along with an 86:51 K:BB across 86 innings. Given his age and absence of experience beyond the High-A level, it would be a surprise to see Carrillo reach the majors this season.
