The Dodgers dumped Brian Wilson on Tuesday afternoon, choosing to eat the remaining $9.5 million on his contract. And the new front office is not done unloading expensive mistakes from the old regime.
According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers are “talking to teams” about right-handed reliever Brandon League and are willing to pay “almost half” of the $7.5 million salary that he’s due in the final year of his three-year, $22.5 million deal.
League had a nice-looking 2.57 ERA in 63 innings this past season for Los Angeles, but that came alongside an ugly 1.46 WHIP and 38/27 K/BB ratio. He finished with a 5.30 ERA in 2013.
Maybe the Dodgers can convince a team to give up some talent for him.
Helping the cause is that it’s only going to cost around $4 million.
