Dodgers sign Garret Anderson

New, comment

The Dodgers and Garret Anderson have agreed to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to the Associated Press. 

If the outfielder is added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster, he would receive a $550,000, one-year contract and the chance to earn an additional $200,000 in performance bonuses. If he is not added to the big league roster by April 1, he could ask for his release.

Anderson will compete to be the teams primary left-handed hitter off the bench. He faces steep competition from Brian Giles and Doug Mientkiewicz.
