From the official Twitter account of the Los Angeles Dodgers …

Jackson was limited to 11 minor league games in 2014 due to a right wrist injury that ultimately required surgery. The 26-year-old was a fifth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2009 and played 20 games for St. Louis between 2012-2013. He has a good glove and will act as solid organizational infield depth for the Royals.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Milwaukee Brewers have signed Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez will get a $2 million base salary with $2 million in potential performance bonuses.

Gonzalez was excellent for the Brewers down the stretch last season, posting a 2.13 ERA over his final five regular season starts. While it’s not likely he can replicate that, given how terrible Milwaukee’s rotation has been thus far — they have a 5.74 ERA as a group this season — he can’t hurt.

Not a bad landing pad for a guy who had to settle for a minor league deal with the Yankees before being released over the weekend.
