Walters signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday and will start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Walters split 2014 between three different minor league clubs. He has past experience in the majors, and the Dodgers continue to look for starters to fill out the back end of the rotation. He's definitely no lock to start with the major league club, but a strong couple of starts at Triple-A could lead to a chance until Hyun-Jin Ryu returns from the disabled list.
