Los Angeles Dodgers Sign Josh Bard

The Los Angeles Dodgers and general manager Ned Colletti continued their busy ways during this offseason by signing yet another player to a contract. This time, the club signed backup catcher Josh Bard to a one-year deal valued at about $750K, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. It's a minor-league deal, however, reports Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

Bard, 33, has spent his eight seasons primarily as the backup catcher for a handful of teams. But, it's unclear what Bard's role with the Dodgers would be as of right now - if there's any.

The team signed catcher Matt Treanor to a one-year, $1 million deal earlier this offseason, but he's currently slotted to backup catcher A.J. Ellis. The Dodgers also have Tim Federowicz, whom they acquired from the Boston Red Sox in the Erik Bedard deal that occurred last trade deadline. It's very possible Josh Bard doesn't make the team out of Spring Training.
