Dodgers Re-Sign Kuroda, Complete Dotel Trade
Update: The Times says the deal is rumored to be worth $12M for one year.
Update 2: $4M of the deal is deferred, with $4M to be paid out as a signing bonus in 2012 and 2013.
The Dodgers also completed the Octavio Dotel trade by selecting OF Anthony Jackson, a 26-year-old who has never played above AA. He spent the last two years in AA Tulsa, amassing a .236/.327/.310 line. So the Dodgers effectively turned Andrew Lambo and James McDonald into about a month and a half rental of Dotel, cash, and Jackson. Nice going, Ned.
