After the impressive closing out of the season in replacement of Kenley Jansen, Brandon League has earned himself a 3-Year $21 million deal with the Dodgers. With Jansen out with an irregular heartbeat and despite his season ending surgery to correct it, the Dodgers are keen to keeping League as the closer in the new season. Among the bullpen which ranked 4th in the national league in ERA with a 3.23, the Dodgers are moving quickly to fill their roster and turn around a season that slipped through their fingers. With one player ticked off their list, the Dodgers will look to reliever Randy Choate for a new contract as well as field the market for another starting pitcher. As he was mentioned last year James Shields appears to be on the top of that list. With Shields finishing out the season with a powerful complete game, multi-strikeout game, it is hard to ignore what he can do for the Dodgers.
