THE FLATS – Former Georgia Tech bullpen catcher Johnathan Langley was elevated to the Los Angeles Dodgers to work in their bullpen, the club announced Monday.
After spending four years as a pivotal voice in the Yellow Jackets’ bullpen, Langley was signed to the Dodgers’ organization in June 2018 before spending a year with the Arizona League Dodgers, the team’s Rookie Level minor league affiliate. Now in the Major League, Langley will fulfill the same role with the LA pitching staff that includes Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler.
“I’m really excited to work with the Dodgers,” Langley said. “The players, coaches and staff are all first class and I’m grateful to be a part of such a storied franchise. I’d like to thank God for guiding my steps each day and making this a possibility. Finally, thank you to all my coaches, friends and family for always believing in me.”
Langley came to The Flats from nearby Dunwoody, where he played first base and caught behind the plate at Dunwoody High School. A member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Board, Langley was just as active off the field as he was with the team, participating in numerous NCAA and community outreach functions for the Yellow Jackets, including being a part of Georgia Tech’s first-ever “Jackets Without Borders” trip to Costa Rica in August 2017.
He graduated with a degree in business administration with a concentration in operations and supply chain management in May 2018.
