The Los Angeles Dodgers and free-agent right-handed reliever Todd Coffey have agreed to a deal, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. It's a one-year deal worth $1.3 million with a club option for 2013, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, but Heyman later adds Coffey can earn an additional $350K in incentives. The deal is pending a physical.
Coffey, 31, joins his fourth different organization in his career. The 31-year-old posted a 3.62 ERA across 59 2/3 innings of work along with a 6.9 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9. As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports notes, Coffey had a ton of success against right-handed batters, who hit just .193/.250/.290 last season, but the lefties got the best of him (.338/.404/.463). Coffey is just another arm in what I believe is an underrated bullpen out in Los Angeles.
