Dodgers Sign Mark Loretta, Casey Blake Deal Said Near

The Dodgers signed utility man Mark Loretta to a one-year deal, terms unknown. He will replace Nomar Garciaparra as the team's utility infielder. The 36-year-old Loretta hit .280/.350/.383 this year with the Astros.

Loretta is insurance against Chin-Lung Hu not being ready, which it's likely his bat isn't and may never be; but third base awaits a real solution, and the Dodgers apparently think it's still Casey Blake. Tony Jackson reports the Dodgers are closing in on a 3-year/$17M deal, though a subsequent dispatch indicated the deal won't be completed until later today at the earliest.
