Former Calhoun High star Charlie Culberson will have a new organization to call home this coming season as he signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.

Culberson will be a non-roster invitee to the Dodgers’ big-league camp this coming spring and have a chance to compete for a spot on the club’s 40-man roster and the team’s Opening Day roster.

The former Jacket spent the past three seasons with the Colorado Rockies. He was sent outright to Triple-A last June by the Rockies and became a free agent after the season, which he missed most of because of a back injury. He was originally drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2007 and spent almost five years with the franchise before being traded.
