Dodgers Sign Garret Anderson To Minor League Contract

Baseball sources say that veteran Garret Anderson has signed with the LA Dodgers, and Dodgers GM Ned Colletti has confirmed the signing. It's a low-cost move by Los Angeles, with Anderson making about $550K plus incentives if he makes the roster for Opening Day. The 37-year old is expected to be competing with Brian Giles and Doug Mientkiewicz for a backup role as an outfielder and left-hander off the bench. There's also an out clause built into his contract if he doesn't break camp with the team.

Anderson spent 2009 with Atlanta, hitting .268/.303/.401 in 135 games with the Braves. He spent the first fifteen years of his career with the Angels after making his debut in 1994. Anderson's best season was probably 2002, when he batted .306, with 29 home-runs and 123 RBI, a performance that resulted in him coming fourth in the AL MVP voting that year. He drove in ten runs in one game for the Angels, setting the franchise record on August 21, 2007.
