MERGED: Odalis Perez resigns with LA

Odalis Perez - S - LA


Odalis Perez will re-sign with the Dodgers for $24 million over three years, ESPNews reports.
At one point in the offseason, it had seemed like offers for Perez may top out at about $5 million per season. This is more in line with what he deserves compared to what Russ Ortiz, Eric Milton and Kris Benson received. Staying with the Dodgers should allow him to keep posting sub-4.00 ERAs through the end of the deal. With Perez joining Jeff Weaver and Brad Penny, there are now two rotation spots open for Edwin Jackson, Kazuhisa Ishii, Elmer Dessens and Wilson Alvarez. The Dodgers still could add another pitcher to guarantee that both Dessens and Alvarez will work out of the pen initially. Jan. 4 - 6:01 pm et

Talk about the most undervalued player this offseason, the best move the dodgers have made yet.

i agree he was the most underrated player this offseason and it was a great move by the dodgers picking them up after losing both green and beltre.

It's a lot of money, but I think he's a better sign at this price than a guy like Eric Milton. Staying with the Dodgers at the pitcher friendly park will be good for him, of course.

Misleading title chinch sacs.

Resigns: leave your current job / employer for a better option

Re-signs: stay with your current job / employer for a further term, because it's still a good option

Another example of how crazy the English language is.

Anyway, good news for Perez owners. He will be undervalued this season due to a lack of WINS last season through little fault of his own. He is capable of putting up Top 15 SP numbers.

That signing kind of leaves Derek Lowe out in the cold. Pure baby. Can't get the big money is looking for. I hope that all the teams just lock him out. I also hope he ends up in Japan. Its time some of the teams stood up to Boras.
