Jamey Carroll Reportedly Close To New Deal With Mystery Team

Los Angeles Dodgers veteran infielder Jamey Carroll has seemingly started to age in reverse as of late, as he is reportedly very close to signing a new multi-year deal in the process. The rub? No one knows just what team he is close to signing with yet. 

Per Jerry Crasnick on Twitter:

The ageless Jamey Carroll is close to signing a multi-year deal in next few days, I'm hearing. He hit .290 in 452 ABs w /#Dodgers

The speculation isn't seeming to pop up any leading candidates yet, as Jon Morosi tweeted that it isn't the Blue Jays, Troy Renck tweeted that it isn't the Rockies, while Dylan Hernandez tweeted that it isn't the Dodgers either.  Sure there are a lot of other possible landing spots for the 37 year old veteran, but some of the logical places he may have gone seem to be out of the question as of now. 

Carroll signed a two-year, $3.85 million deal with the Dodgers before the 2010 season, and was expected to be used as a utility infielder. He started 207 games in the last two seasons with L.A. and qualified for the batting title in 2011 for just the second time ever in his nine year professional carrer. 

In 146 games for the Dodgers in 2011, Carroll hit a very respectable .290 along with a .359 on-base percentage. He started 118 games at shortstop, 76 games at second base, eight games at third base, and five more in left field for the Dodgers in 2010-2011, undoubtedly highlighting his versatility to the rest of the league.
