Dodgers Address Crucial Pitching Shortage

From "Dodgers, Rudy Seanez agree to terms" from the L.A. Times:

Right-hander Rudy Seanez and the Dodgers have agreed to a minor league contract that could pay the veteran relief pitcher $1.2 million if he meets performance incentives.

Seanez, a 15-year veteran who split last season with the Boston Red Sox and San Diego Padres, would make $700,000 if he makes the team and get $100,000 for each five appearances beginning at 45 and ending at 65.

Hey, another pitcher. Is there even room on the 40-man roster for this guy?
