The Angels have purchased the contract of Tim Dorn from the Southern Illinois Miners of the Frontier League. Dorn is a SoCal boy through and through. He was born in Pasadena, went to Monrovia High School, and played his college ball at both East Los Angeles College (JC) and Cal State Northridge.
Dorn is a 6’8″ masher, who hit 35 HR in 125 games (over two seasons) for the Miners. He will be invited to spring training, though it’s very unlikely that he would make the Big Club. More realistically, he simply adds organizational depth at first base.
