Josh Wall has labored within the Dodgers farm system since being drafted out of the 2nd round in 2005. He started out as a starting pitcher and made his way through rookie ball to single A ball over 6 seasons. Figuring that the rotation wouldn't be his path to the majors, the Dodgers converted him into a reliever. Soon, Josh would become the Dodgers AAA closer and finally get a chance to show off his stuff with the Dodgers on several different occasions last season.
Wall pitched in 7 games, and did very well if you throw out the one miserable experience that saw him yield the only runs he allowed all year. He figures to be going back to AAA in 2013, but I would expect that he would be the first call-up should the Dodgers need a right-handed reliever. Below are his 2012 game logs from Baseball-Reference.
