Ryan Doumit Passes On Dodgers

Update 7:13 PM ET: Doumit hasn't "closed the door" on the Dodgers, writes Mike DiGiovonna of the Los Angeles Times.

Free agent catcher/first baseman/right fielder Ryan Doumit declined the Los Angeles Dodgers' one-year, $3 million contract offer, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. DiGiovanna also adds the other Los Angeles team, the Angels, haven't reached out to the free agent.

However, this shouldn't change the main scheme of things. Yesterday, Doumit's agent told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that his client could sign within the next few days. If anything, Doumit declining the Dodgers offer cuts down a suitor and hints the free agent could be looking for more than $3 million.

The 30-year old Doumit hit .303/.353/.477 with 8 homers in 236 plate appearances (77 games) last season with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Doumit can play first base, right field, and even catch some if a team is willing to take a hit defensively behind the plate.
