The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder David Peralta and right-handers Jimmy Nelson and Alex Reyes to contracts on Thursday.

Peralta signed a one-year, $6.5 million deal, Nelson inked a one-year, $1.2 million pact and Reyes agreed to a one-year contract for $1.1 million.

Also on Thursday, the Dodgers transferred right-handers Walker Buehler, Blake Treinen and J.P. Feyereisen to the 60-day injured list.

Buehler, 28, likely will miss the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in August.

Treinen, 34, and Feyereisen, 30, had right shoulder surgery in November and December, respectively.

Peralta, 35, split the 2022 season with Arizona and Tampa Bay and batted .251 with 12 homers and 59 RBIs in 134 games. He is a career .281/.339/.457 hitter with 110 homers and 486 RBIs in 1,008 games with the Diamondbacks (2014-22) and Rays.

Peralta won a Gold Glove in left field in 2019. He led the National League with 10 triples in 2015 and led the majors with eight triples in 2021.

Nelson, 33, missed all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

He owns a 34-48 record with a 4.12 ERA in 147 career games (108 starts) with the Milwaukee Brewers and Dodgers.

Reyes, 28, has five years of experience with the St. Louis Cardinals and was an All-Star for the first time in 2021, but he did not pitch last season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Over 101 career appearances (seven starts), Reyes is 16-11 with a 2.86 ERA. In his All-Star season of 2021, he was 10-8 with a 3.24 ERA as he took over at closer with 29 saves in a career-best 69 appearances.
