    • Joe Blanton: Reaches agreement with Dodgers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blanton and the Dodgers agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract, Yahoo's Jeff Passan reports. Following a string of disappointing seasons as a starter, the 35-year-old Blanton reinvented himself as an effective reliever last season, posting a 2.84 ERA, 9.4 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 over 76 innings and 36 appearances (four starts). He'll likely serve as a middle/long reliever, with the potential to provide rotation depth if the Dodgers are hit hard by injuries.
