GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Right-hander Chad Gaudin has agreed to a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Gaudin agreed to a minor league deal with Philadelphia in January 2014, then was released at the start of spring training and didn't pitch last season.

The 31-year-old is 45-44 with a 4.44 ERA in 11 major league seasons with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Oakland, the Chicago Cubs, San Diego, the New York Yankees, Oakland, Washington, Miami and San Francisco. He was 5-2 with a 3.06 ERA in 12 starts and 18 relief appearances for the Giants in 2013.

''Right now, I don't think we're looking at him as a starter,'' Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday.

Earlier in the week, the Dodgers announced agreements with Dustin McGowan and Brandon Beachy, who was put on the disabled list as he recovers from elbow ligament-replacement surgery.
