Its been reported that the Dodgers further added to their bench today signing Alfredo Amezaga to a minor league deal. The deal is said to be worth $650k if he makes the team with incentives that can raise his salary to $850k. This all comes via Ken Rosenthal on Twitter.
Well this throws a wrench into the roster discussions going on here at the previous post.
I believe someone said in that thread that “it takes a village.” Well, we are certainly equipped now. Plenty of backups for the stuntmen crew with Amezaga joining Reed Johnson, Jamey Carroll, and Ronnie Belliard. Amezaga plays all over the field, he has literally played every position except for pitcher and catcher. He is best in center and at short I have heard.
Also, this just in, Dylan Hernandez reports via Twitter that the Dodgers would like to bring Jeff Weaver back but that our “roster situation” may prevent us from doing so.
What does everyone think the lineup will look like now?
