Report: Dodgers, Brett Anderson agree to one-year, $10 million deal

Monday December 15th, 2014

The Los Angeles Dodgers and left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson have agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal, reports ESPN's Buster Olney. 

The deal comes with $4 million in possible incentives, according to Olney. 

Anderson started eight games for the Colorado Rockies in 2014, going 1-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 1.315 WHIP. He had season-ending back surgery in August and the Rockies later declined a $12 million option on him for 2015.

The 26-year-old spent the first five years of his career with the Oakland Athletics, going 26-29 with a 3.73 ERA and 357 strikeouts in 450.1 innings. Anderson is a former second-round draft pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2006. 

In 2011, Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery and made only six starts the following season.
