Here's the latest from the Dodgers...
- John Grabow has exercised the out clause in his contract and has been granted his release, reports MLB.com's Ken Gurnick (Twitter link). The southpaw was in the Dodgers camp on a minor league deal and had looked good in Spring Training, striking out seven batters across six scoreless innings. Grabow would have made $800K had he made the club's roster.
- Jamey Wright has been told he will be added to the Dodgers roster once the team completes the official paperwork, tweets Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. Hernandez previously reported that Wright can earn $900K if he makes the club's roster, with up to $500K extra in incentives based on innings pitched. It seems like L.A. had a choice to make between Wright and Grabow and chose Wright, and by letting Grabow walk before March 30, the Dodgers save paying him an extra $100K bonus.
- The Dodgers have agreed to sign Dominican right-hander Bryan Munoz, reports MLB.com's Ken Gurnick. The deal is worth $300K and will be official once Munoz passes a physical. Munoz, 16, is represented by Kevin Bandel and throws a fastball "already touching 90 mph." The right-hander also drew interest from the Diamondbacks, Rangers, Tigers and Twins.
- Though Los Angeles doesn't currently have an NFL team, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell considers the city to be a league market, reports Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal. As such, the NFL's cross-ownership rules would apply if Stan Kroenke (who owns the St. Louis Rams) wins his bid to buy the Dodgers. If Kroenke indeed buys the team, Goodell told Bud Selig that the NFL "would move quickly" to resolve the issue. (Both links are to Twitter.)
