Brett Anderson Agrees to One-Year Deal with Dodgers

Per Buster Olney of, left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers worth $10 million, with another $4 million in possible incentives.

Injuries limited Anderson to just eight starts for the Colorado Rockies in 2014, in which he posted a 1-3 record alongside a 2.91 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 2.23 SO/BB ratio. Per MLBTR, the Rockies paid Anderson a $1.5MM buyout rather than picking up his $12MM club option.

In his career, the 26-year-old southpaw owns a 27-32 record with a 3.73 ERA, 1.285 WHIP and a 2.90 SO/BB ratio.

Anderson, along with recently acquired Brandon McCarthy, will join a stacked Dodgers’ rotation that already includes reigning Cy-Young award winner Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

    If they keep him, unlike Heaney, Anderson will be the best pitcher they’ve picked up this fall by a wide margin. Considering his drawbacks, that’s how mediocre the others are, including McCarthy, who is a more-expensive younger but not better Haren.
