Dodgers Agree To Terms With Garret Anderson

The Dodgers have agreed to terms with Garret Anderson on a minor-league deal that will be worth $550K if he makes the team. The 37-year-old can opt out of his contract if he doesn't find himself on the Dodgers' major league roster by a certain date. 

Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times first reported the news and tweeted details; Jon Heyman of also added contract details (via Twitter).

Anderson, 37, hit .268/.303/.401 in 534 plate appearances with the Braves last season.  UZR/150 had him at 16.5 runs below average in left field in 2009 – strictly backup material at this point in his career.  The Dodgers signed five other outfielders to minor league deals this winter: Alfredo Amezaga, Brian Barton, Brian Giles, Prentice Redman, and Michael Restovich.
