Estes One Step Closer to Rarefied Air of NL West Journeymen

Steve Finley. Matt Herges. Members of an exclusive club, to be sure. A club of baseball players who have never dated Alyssa Milano? No. Both Finley and Herges became the first players to have played for all five NL West teams when they joined Colorado in 2007.

And now this Dynamic Duo might become a Terrible Threesome. The Dodgers signed Shawn Estes to a minor-league contract earlier today. Should Estes make the club, he could earn up to $1.55 million—and more importantly, join the few. The proud. The NL West journeymen.
