LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to sign former Giants pitcher Jonathan Sanchez to a minor league deal, pending a physical.

Sanchez, who threw a no hitter on July 10, 2009, will be assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque, where he has an opt-out clause should he not reach the majors by July.

The Dodgers are looking to add depth to their rotation, which has been subject to numerous injuries since the season began, losing Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano, Stephen Fife, and Josh Beckett.

The team has used nine starting pitchers this season.

The signing was first reported by ESPN’s Pedro Gomez

Sanchez, a left-handed pitcher, had gone 0-3 with an ERA of 11.85 with the Pittsburgh Pirates before being released in April.

In his career, Sanchez is 39-58 with a 4.70 ERA, and pitched in the 2010 World Series for the Giants.
