The Los Angeles Dodgers have announced today (December 12th) that they have signed Tony Gwynn Jr. to a two-year contract. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that he will earn $850k in 2012 and $1.15 million in 2013.
I’ll do analysis later, but he’s basically a replacement level type player. Granted, he’ll be hard pressed to not live up to the contract given playing time, but he was bordering on not being tendered a contract and the Dodgers gave him a two-year deal.
Everybody is getting two-year deals in Ned Colletti‘s attempt to make sure the Dodgers don’t compete until 2014 at the earliest.
