Dodgers agree to 2-year deal with Mark Ellis

Mark EllisBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Matt Kemp is the big news in Los Angeles today, but the Dodgers may have made a smaller move as well. The team has agreed to sign second baseman Mark Ellis to a two-year deal worth $8.75 million, CBSSports.com senior writer Scott Miller confirms. Miller adds the Dodgers have a third-year option on Ellis.

The Dodgers' previous second baseman, Jamey Carroll, has agreed to a contract with Minnesota. Justin Sellers is the only second baseman on the Dodgers' roster.

Ellis, 34, hit .248/.288/.346 with seven home runs and 41 RBI with the Athletics and Rockies last season, hitting much better (shocker) once he arrived in Denver, hitting .274/.317/.392 with six home runs and 25 RBI in 70 games with the Rockies.
