Update 4:40 PM ET: it's official. The Dodgers have re-signed right-handed reliever Mike MacDougal to a one-year contract with a club option for 2013, the club announced via Twitter.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are close to re-signing free-agent reliever Mike MacDougal, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. With the contracts the Dodgers have handed out, anything short of two-years will be disappointing for non-Dodgers fans.

McDougal, who turns 35 in March, posted a 2.05 ERA across 57 innings of work with a 6.5 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in his first season with the Dodgers last year. If there's one thing he can do, it's keep the ball on the ground as seen with a career 58.2% groundball rate. The former first-round pick has played with six different organizations, and four in the past three years.
