Mike Axisa over at MLBTR has a nice article about yesterdays news about Colletti having yet to discuss long-term deals with 2011 Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw
, and Andre Ethier
The Dodgers signed third baseman Josh Fields
to a minor league contract. Fields is a former first round pick. He was taken 18th overall in the 2004 draft by the Chicago White Sox. He has pretty much failed to perform in every aspect. He had a decent season back in 2007, but since has been absolute garbage. Didn't even appear at the major league level last season, and I doubt he will again in 2012.
This news comes from Nick Collias over at MLBTR, sources close to Amaury Sanit
tell Fernando Ballesteros at Puro Béisbol in Mexico that the Dodgers are interested in signing the 32-year-old reliever. Sanit logged just seven innings out of the Yankees' pen last season before being released in June, but he has seen more action as the closer for the Culicán Tomateros in the Mexican League this winter, pitching to a 0.62 era in 36 appearances. I know absolutely nothing about this guy, but I am going to dig a little and see what else I can find out. The links I have found so far are all in spanish, soooo, yeah, haven't been able to find out much.
