Utility player Jamey Carroll has accepted a two-year deal to join the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Carroll, who may be considered the best pinch-hitter in the Major Leagues with a career .351 average in nearly 100 career at-bats in the situation, will primarily come off the bench for the Dodgers. The versatile Carroll can play second base, third base and the corner outfield positions.
The folks at True Blue LA don’t seem very enthused the Dodgers’ organization is giving Carroll a two-year contract, but like his versatility.
Buster Olney tweets Carroll’s contract is worth just under $4 million over the two years, plus incentives.
