According to Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown, the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed infielder Adam Kennedy to a one-year deal.
The deal is reportedly worth around $800,000 once Kennedy passes his physical, who is coming over from Seattle after a decent season in the great Northwest, and should provide some much needed help and plugging some holes in the infield next season.
Kennedy, 35, played every infield position aside from shortstop last year for the Mariners, finishing at a .234/.277/.355 clip along with 23 doubles in his 409 plate appearances. Kennedy had previously signed similar one-year deals in each of the last two winters, though the Mariners signed him to a minor league deal worth around $750,000 plus incentives last offseason. Kennedy will be entering his 14th major league season in 2012.
