The Dodgers may have been given the Heisman by Ryan Doumit (is Mr. Misty May
s next?), but Ned Colletti has signed second baseman Mark Ellis to a two-year, $8.75 million contract that includes a team option for 2014. "Ellis, 34, hit .248/.288/.346 in 519 plate appearances for the Athletics and Rockies this year," MLBTR tells us.
Meanwhile, Ken Gurnick at Dodgers.com brings us this interesting Hiroki Kuroda tidbit:
Kuroda told the club that he will re-sign only if he feels the team has a chance to win the World Series. Otherwise he will consider other Major League clubs.
What changed between the trading deadline and now, I wonder?
