Ex-Yankee Tommy Kahnle signs with Dodgers in MLB free agency



The Los Angeles Dodgers are adding a former Yankee to their bullpen — for 2022.

Tommy Kahnle, who had Tommy John surgery in August, is signing a two-year deal with the World Series champion Dodgers, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed.

Kahnle, 31, will likely miss the entire 2021 MLB season. He appeared in just one inning for the Yankees during the shortened 2020 season before being diagnosed with a UCL injury.

The hard-throwing right-hander had a 3.67 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 72 regular-season appearances for the Yankees in 2019 before giving up just two runs in eight innings across eight postseason appearances that October.

The Yankees acquired Kahnle from the Chicago White Sox in July of 2017 along with Todd Frazier and David Robertson for Tyler Clippard and three minor leaguers. He had a 2.70 ERA in 32 appearances the rest of that season in the Bronx before posting a 6.56 ERA in 24 appearances in 2018.
