Dodgers To Sign Dana Eveland

The Dodgers agreed to sign Dana Eveland to a minor league split contract, according to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times. Eveland joins his fourth organization in ten months; he went from Oakland to Toronto in a February trade before the Pirates acquired him mid-season.

The 27-year-old left-hander pitched 54 1/3 innings for the Pirates and Blue Jays in 2010. In total, Eveland allowed 11.9 hits and 5.3 walks per nine innings pitched, striking out 4.0 batters per nine. Those peripheral stats aren't pretty, but he generated lots of ground balls as usual, posting a 50% ground ball rate. Eveland's best major league season came in 2008, when he made 29 starts at the back of Oakland's rotation and posted a 4.34 ERA.

The Dodgers will be able to retain Eveland as an arbitration eligible player through 2013, but the move is presumably geared toward 2011.
