Tim Wakefield to make a decision about his career soon

Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports that Tim Wakefield will make a decision within the next few days whether he’ll continue his playing career in 2012. Quoting his agent, Barry Meister:

“We’re discussing the options — and he has some options — and over the next few days, we’re going to try to figure it out.  These next few days is just a period of introspection, where he’s trying to decide what to do, whether to play, who to play for.

Seems to me that 30 general managers have already made his decision for him, but hey, he’s entitled to call it a career on his own terms if he wants to.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
