Dodgers To Sign Brad Ausmus

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers reached an agreement with catcher Brad Ausmus on a one-year, $1MM deal.  The Padres will have to keep looking for a veteran backstop.

Ausmus, 40 in April, hit .218/.303/.296 in 250 plate appearances for the Astros last year while throwing out 17.4% of attempted thieves.  His value will lie in intangibles.
